Abstract:
This paper explores: (1) why a safety case was proposed for WA industry; (2) what a safety case regime is; (3) the available evidence concerning the benefits and disadvantages of a SCR; and (4) the characteristics of the mining industry that would need to be incorporated into any safety case regime for WA or elsewhere in Australia. The paper argues that lessons learned from SCR elsewhere must be taken on board and any SCR must be modified to accommodate the special industry and socio-political characteristics of the mining industry. This paper was first presented at the 31st International Conference of Safety in Mines Research Institutes, Brisbane, October, 2005.
