Category - MINE SAFETY RESEARCH

Mine safety research seeks to evaluate and quantify condition affecting the health and safety of mine workers. AMSJ regularly features a range of research articles that contribute to the global discussion and body of knowledge on the health and safety of mine workers and the communities where they live.

Our page provides summaries and links to the latest cutting-edge research and provides a forum for researchers to share their findings with the mining community.

Australasian Mine Safety Journal provides links to the world’s leading research providers, research funding organisations, research related conferences and other related bodies.

Research areas of interest to our readership extend across emerging issues in mine safety and health including FIFO, human-machine interactions (proximity detection), management of dust, the effects of automation on mining safety and health, programmable electronic systems in safety and health, malware and software issues that may affect workers, remote operations centre health and safety, refuge and shelter in underground mines.

We welcome contributions from leading safety and health researchers.
