||Safety rules and regulations on mine sites - The problem and a solution
||2005, Vol.36, No.1, p.39-50. Illus. 14 ref.
||A survey of safety attitudes was conducted at 33 mine sites in Australia and other countries, involving almost 500 mineworkers. The questionnaire survey investigated the opinions of the mining workforce on safety rules and regulations generally and in relation to their specific jobs on the mine site. The insights provided by the mineworkers enabled a set of principles to be developed to guide mine management and regulators in the development of more effective rules and regulations. In particular, it was noted that management should not continue to produce more and more rules and regulations to cover every aspect of mining, since detailed prescriptive regulations, safe work procedures, and voluminous safety management plans will not "connect" with a miner.
