Review and Evaluation of Current Training Programs Found in Various Mining Environments. Final Report. Volume II, Analysis and Recommendations.
Adkins, John; And Others
A project was designed to produce a broad description of current mining training programs and to evaluate their effectiveness with respect to reducing mine injuries. Aggregate training and injury data were used to evaluate the overall training effort at 300 mines as well as specific efforts in 12 categories of training course objectives. From such evaluations, recommendations were derived with particular emphasis being placed on identifying program characteristics that tend to be associated with effective training. Recommendations were also formulated with reference to role changes in industry and government interaction with respect to training programs, new or additional training programs, changes in the types of course materials and training methodologies, and recommendations concerning new areas for investigation. This second volume of a two-volume report is a detailed discussion of the quantitative data analysis and the resulting recommendations regarding a number of specific issues in the field of miner training.
