Corporate Safety Architecture: OHS Management in the Australian Coal Industry and the Role of Regulation

Neil Gunningham , Darren Sinclair

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This research report:
1. Identifies the ‘architecture’ of corporate OHS management around which the
practices of coal mining companies have converged.
2. Conducts a preliminary evaluation of its success.
3. Identifies implementation challenges that may limit its contribution and explain the
current “plateauing” of OHS performance in the mining industry.
4. Examines the interaction between OHS regulation and corporate OHS
architecture, and how best to ensure complementaries rather than conflict
between the two approaches.
