Abstract

This paper sets forth a new hazard detecting and controlling method according to the theory of system safety engineering to tackle the safety problems in coal mining companies of China. It combines classified detecting and controlling with closed-loop management, and detects hazards at different levels by dividing safety inspection into self-checking, working team checking, region team checking and specialist team checking. This method makes hazard management a closed-loop through introducing an accountability mechanism based on the interior market system of hazard detecting. The findings of our case study show that this new method is efficient to improve safety situation of the coal mining industry in China.
