Mining Fatalities & Mine Accident Prevention (Training Presentations)

 
A PowerPoint presentation is utilized to present fatal mine accidents which can be used to train miners in hazard recognition, accident causes, and accident prevention.

A cross section of fatal accidents from both coal and non-coal were chosen to demonstrate various hazards resulting in fatalities.  The PowerPoint presentation uses a variety of methods to encourage participation and thoughts from students.  Some methods used are: 

  • Using handouts and small group interaction to identify potential hazards, fatal mistakes and causal factors. 
  • MSHA “Target Program” videos and photos are incorporated to allow participants to understand MSHA priorities and “Best Practices”.  
  • A presentation that has participants identify unsafe conditions, unsafe procedures and root causes (separate from the MSHA root cause). 
  • Embedded videos and presentations using limited information to stimulate thought concerning accident causes. 
  • Class discussion is encouraged during the presentation.

All presentations encourage individual participation and going beyond MSHA conclusions for accident causation.
