Paper i proceeding, 2012

ABSTRACT Absolute safety does not exist and accidents occur despite risk assessment evolved over decades. But learning lessons from the accidents is crucial. In this regards systematic and methodic classification of accident causal could be helpful to improve risk communication as a prerequisite for improvement of safety. This study is concerned with analyzing and methodic classifying the causes of some mining accidents using Reasons’ Model. The relation between such classified causes and their interactions are discussed in the last part of this paper. Finally, layers of protection have been recommended to adapt to such mining field so as to improve the mining safety.
