Mine emergency risk preparedness and readiness self-assessment; A proactive approach

Mining Engineering, 2018, Vol. 70, No. 10, pp. 35-35
Stalfort, David; York-Feirn, William; Kravitz, Jeffrey


PREVIEW:

Mining is an inherently risky business. Over the years, major mine disasters have resulted in the deaths and injuries of thousands of miners in the United States. These disasters also resulted in innovations in approaches to mine design, operations and the training of miners and mine rescue teams. The U.S. Congress responded to these disasters with new laws designed to create mandatory safety and health standards as a means to eliminate fatal accidents; to reduce the frequency and severity of nonfatal accidents; to minimize health hazards and to promote improved safety and health conditions in the nation’s mines.
