Health And Safety Gap Analysis
o All new or transferred employees, visitor, contractors and vendors receive site-
based safety and health orientation before being permitted to work onsite.
o Initial, on-going and periodic refresher training is conducted to ensure job and
regulatory requirements.
o Combine discretionary training with regulatory training (MSHA, OSHA) whenever
possible, e.g., new employee/miner training with company orientation.
o Where on-the-job training is conducted, the instructor should follow standards for
knowledge transfer and adhere to standard operating procedure where they exist.
o Ensure contractors, visitors and vendors receive appropriate training to provide
adequate worker protection for both the company and their third-party partners.
o Provide train-the-trainer development to those who develop and deliver company
S&H management training.
Action needed:
Occupational Health:
o Conduct representative qualitative and quantitative risk (exposure) assessments to
characterize occupational health hazards and associated risks.
o Determine the degree of control necessary to address occupational health hazards
and apply the ”hierarchy of control” accordingly.
o Ensure exposure assessment results are communicated to affected employees in a
timely and understandable way.
o For ‘over exposures, determine the need for temporary or permanent health
monitoring and conduct using appropriate medical standards.
o Ensure accurate protection of employee medical confidentiality for non-occupational
information, e.g., HIPPA.
o Provide a mechanism to assess employee general health risks that are relevant to
the occupational setting, e.g., blood pressure, blood sugar, weight, flexibility,
strength, etc.
o Provide wellness education for employees including mechanisms that can be
pursued to improve general health risk factors both on and off the job.
o Document occupational health management data for compliance, analysis and
verification purposes, and for future reference.

Action needed:
Behavior Optimization:
o Educate employees regarding the causes of safe and unsafe behavior, e.g., the ABC
model, how to control their own behavior and when and how to intervene with co-
workers.
o Develop a workplace observation and feedback process. The process should be
confidential and voluntary, but collect observation data for analysis
o Apply the ABC model beyond observation and feedback to include an emphasis on
general safety and health activators and consequences.
o Ensure adequate focus on the quality of observations and feedback.

Action needed:
Contractor Management & Purchasing:
o Ensure all company-sponsored project proposals and/or requests for proposals
include safety and health management criteria or requirements.
o Pre-screen all operational and project contractors for acceptable S&H management
experience and qualifications.
o Ensure contractors notify the company of the introduction of tools, equipment,
materials, chemicals or work processes that could be a risk to contractors and/or
company personnel.
o Ensure all contractors and third parties are aware of S&H management requirements
and expectations including emergency response plans and reporting obligations.
