10 Pathways to Death and Disaster (Singleton)
The Hunter Region Branch of The Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM) invites you to hear from distinguished speaker Michael Quinlan on Wednesday 26th February 2020 as part of the AusIMM Health & Safety Society Distinguished Lecture Series.
The topic of Michael's presentation will be based on his book “10 Pathways to Death and Disaster” which seeks to answer questions such as:
- Why do mine disasters continue to occur in wealthy countries when major mine hazards have been known for over 200 years and subject to regulation for well over a century?
- What lessons can be drawn from these disasters and are mine operators, regulators and others drawing the correct conclusions from such events?
- Why is mining significantly safer in some countries than in others?
- Are the underlying causes of disasters substantially different from those that result in one or two fatalities?
Event attendance is free, but registrations are essential.
