CHAPTER XXIII
SAFETY ORGANISATION
REGULATION 83. GENERAL PROVISIONS
1.
All the mines in a coal-mining district should affiliate to a
central safety organisation for the district and have their own
safety organisation, headed by a competent official who, except
in small mines, should have no other duties or responsibility than
the safety of the workings of the mine.
2.
(1) Every mine employing such number of persons as
may be specified by national laws or regulations should make
periodical analyses of the accidents occurring in the mine, in
accordance with rules to be laid down by the competent author-
ity.
(2) The manager should use these statistics for ascertaining
and dealing with
(a) districts that need increased supervision;
(b) particular sources of danger that call for changes in methods; or
(c) particular defects that need to be remedied.
(3) A copy of the analyses should be sent to the competent
authority, at intervals to be prescribed in national laws or
regulations.
3.
If a mine has a consistently bad record of accidents, the
competent authority may require the setting up of a special
safety organisation for that mine.
REGULATION 84. WORKERS' SAFETY DELEGATES
1.
Authorised representatives of the workers shall be per-
mitted to inspect the mine, and all written reports and mine plans
relative to the safety of the mine and the mine employees shall be
made available at the mine for their examination.
2.
In the case of a serious or fatal accident, such authorised
representatives of the workers shall have the right to examine the
place where, and the circumstances under which, the accident
occurred.
