Risk-based approach to hazard assessment in the mining industry

An important problem of the mining industry is the constant exposure of hazardous and harmful factors in the production environment, which leads to serious injuries and chronic occupational diseases of a person. Mining facilities also have a significant negative impact on the quality of the environment. Sometimes the consequences of mining activities have irreversible processes in ecological systems. In this regard, for a long time, the main research in this area has been aimed at predicting risks in the production environment and environmental risks. Based on such forecasting, it is necessary to develop measures to prevent and eliminate the causes of any event by minimizing risks, and not to develop measures to eliminate the consequences of this event. Thus, the application of a risk-based approach in the management of technosphere safety at mining enterprises and the development of recommendations for the creation of a unified information system.

Keywords: safety management, mining industry, risk-oriented approach, production environment, assessment methods, production and occupational risk, environmental risk, human factor, risk forecasting.
