Systematic Approach to Mine Health and Safety Management

Following a systematic approach to management makes it both more effective and easier to manage your mine. You have to work out the best way to handle each activity in the mine and subsequently ensure that everyone makes use of the same approach each time. Using a consistent approach can not only reduce mistakes, but also reduce the cost of correcting problems over time.
