Preventing Serious Incidents and Fatalities (SIFs) in mining and energy industries

This research is a partnership between the Alberta Mine Safety Association, Energy Safety Canada, Alberta Construction Safety Association, University of Alberta, University of Calgary, and mining and energy companies – to better understand and reduce serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs). We are interested in knowing more about hazard recognition and critical controls, and human and organizational factors that may impact safety. The goal is to understand more about what might lead to a serious incident so we can better protect workers and save lives!

WHAT WILL BE ASKED OF YOU?

You will be asked to complete a short survey (about 10 minutes) about different hazards, characteristics of your work team, how they manage safety, and some information about yourself to understand how these factors might influence safety. You can skip any questions that you do not wish to answer. You may also be asked to participate in a short interview (about 30 minutes) that expands on these topics and aims to understand more about your personal experiences.

WHAT IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO PARTICIPATE?

This is totally fine! You are under no obligation to participate in this survey, or an interview and your participation is completely voluntary. If you would like to complete an alternative activity while others are completing the survey, you will be given the option to when you open the survey link.
