Welcome to the June edition of CORESafety TV — the online video program from the National Mining Association.
Integrity in reporting and timely investigation are both critical steps for preventing future occurrences of safety-related incidents.
There are two categories that require different types of reporting:
- Reportable incidents
- Non-reportable incidents
Incidents cannot be investigated if they are not reported. All mining personnel should be aware of what a reportable incident is within each company and as defined by regulatory requirements and company policy. They should also understand that they are expected to report to management in a timely manner.
Non-reportable incidents include:
- Near miss events
- Property damage
- Operational, maintenance or process integrity incidents that could have a negative outcome
