Abstract
The U.S. Bureau of Mines is researching management and behavioral approaches to improving safety and other aspects of organizational effectiveness. While technological innovations are clearly important for achieving these goals, it has become increasingly apparent that innovative human resource management approaches can also have significant organizational benefits. This paper explores the mounting evidence that managerial approaches such as employee involvement techniques, management feedback, and bonus plans are part of a set of common underlying causes of effective safety performance. While many of the effective management strategies involve substantial investments in time and other resources, some, including employee opinion questionnaires and informal problem solving groups, are relatively easy to implement.
