Abstract/Summary While the incidence of major mining disasters in Australia has declined in recent times, there appears to be little or no corresponding reduction in the incidence of single fatalities, especially those involving mobile mining equipment. Of particular concern is the fact that many of the individuals involved in these incidents are experienced operators or maintainers with excellent safety records who have unintentionally acted in a manner that stripped away the final defences between them and the damaging energies of the equipment. Thorough investigation of these incidents can uncover important learnings for others in similar situations, particularly inexperienced workers, but despite publication of safety alerts and toolbox talks to reinforce the learnings, people often find it difficult to relate to these issues in the context of their own workplace.
