2.1.13. Leadership

Leadership in risk management, as with any other endeavour, is absolutely crucial. However, as well as commitment, there is a requirement for a sufficient degree of knowledge to engender quality results and establish appropriate strategies. It is often the case that risk management is not seen as a core principle in successful underground coal mining and is therefore delegated or worse abdicated to the titular Safety Manager. Such actions render risk management as an optional or simply a compliance driven endeavour. Where the mine leadership actively embrace the principles and seek quality application of the principles through and by all levels within the organisation, significant safety and production improvements result.
