Mining Accidents in South Africa

Here is the story:

While any fatality is unfortunate and avoidable, these numbers are truly shocking.  I’m not usually one to suggest government intervention, but clearly something needs to be done; the South African government could learn a great deal from the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) here in the United States.

Of course, the individual companies could/should take action, and that would include better management systems and a good root cause analysis process.  A process like TapRooT®.
