Human Factors in Mining


About the Series

Human Factors in Mining explores key human element issues in the minerals and mining industry. Mining is a significant worldwide industry that employs a huge number of people and generates a large amount of income for mining intensive regions. Although traditionally conservative, it is now beginning to experience a revolution with the introduction of new technologies and automation. These often have significant human factors issues. The books in this series cover a diverse range of topics including human error, equipment design, human centred design and mining automation from a human systems integration standpoint. Future titles will include coverage of risk, safe systems, health, mental health, and toolboxes of human factors methods applicable to mining. These titles will appeal to any professional or student concerned with the mining industry and the safety of the profession.
