Title An attempt at the standardization of natural hazards assessment in mining
Original title Próba standaryzacji oceny zagrożeń naturalnych w górnictwie [in Polish]
Bibliographic information 2004, Vol.123, No.11, p.14-16. 2 ref.
Abstract This article describes a method for calculating new relative indices for assessing the occurrence of natural hazards in mining. Use of the hazard index and the hindrance index allows mines to be classified according to their potential exposure to the effects of natural hazards. On the basis of computed index values, a classification has been made of those mines in which no fatal accident was noted for the period 2001-2003.
