Risk-based approach to keep mining industrial safety

Authors: Kaledina N.O.

Currently, the mining industry should be transferred to a risk-based approach in providing state supervision of industrial safety. “Regulatory guillotine” provides for the abolition of all current regulatory and methodological documents in the industry. However, vital risks should be identified and methods of their assessment and safety management based on these assessments should be proposed. The regulatory framework should become more logical and concise. However, the specifics of the mining industry requires not only a reduction in the volume of documents, but also a serious study in terms of ensuring systematic safety requirements, harmonization of industry and industry standards. In the context of a risk-based approach, all control activities go to the level of production units, while the role of personnel qualification is growing, since organizational risks are prevailing in the mining industry. Therefore, training should be one of the important tasks of the reform of the supervision of industrial safety. It will not work out only through the system of additional professional education, because In this system, personnel are mainly trained at the top managerial level, and the lower and middle levels of mining management are carried out by university graduates. This, in turn, requires an increase in the level of professional training of mountain university graduates, which is difficult to implement in the current system of basic engineering education. The current law” on education “ implements a system of constant quality reduction, which requires its adjustment.

Keywords: mining; industrial safety; risks; supervision and control; regulatory framework; aerological safety; personnel qualification.
