||Safety performance in coal mining: An examination of some underlying issues
||Oct. 2001, Vol.17, No.5, p.485-489. Illus. 19 ref.
||The availability of detailed and reliable data on health, safety and other performance indicators has made the coal mining industry a valuable source of information on possible interrelationships between OHS and productivity. Using this data, it has been possible to demonstrate that a number of factors influence both safety and productivity in the industry. The present article explores some factors that to date have received little attention, including the role of the Joint Coal Board of New South Wales (Australia) and the impact of the production bonus and changes to workers' compensation.
