Resumen A relative risk model for underground coal mine roof and side fall fatal accidents was developed using loglinear analyses of two-way contingency tables. Data such as potential fatalities, the relative risk of fatalities and safety measure effectiveness can be used as key safety performance indicators. The model was applied to data concerning these fatal accidents during six years in underground coal mines in India. It showed that the effectiveness of safety measures across different locations in underground mines was variable, with the focus being mainly concentrated on highly populated workplaces such as the face. The model is generic and can be applied to various industrial settings.
