Driving continuous improvement in US mine safety performance — a new approach

Mining Engineering, 2014, Vol. 66, No. 1, pp. 29-29
Watzman, Bruce


PREVIEW:

Can the United States mining industry achieve its long-stated goal of zero fatalities – and what will it take to do so? Does it require new laws and regulations, as some propose, and a continuation of the command-and-control model that has been born out of more than 40 years of regulation and enforcement under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1969? Or, is it time to consider a new model to manage safety and health and drive continuous, sustained improvement? These are questions that many are debating as mine safety performance, while improved, appears mired in a trough where improvement followed by declines seems to have become the rule rather than the exception.
