Mining Safety: A business imperative

“Cognitive Edge practitioners Aiden Choles, Sonja Blignaut and Nicolaas Herholdt from The Narrative Lab were commissioned by Deloitte’s Mining Safety division in 2009 to the explore the state of mine safety in South Africa using the Cynefin Framework. The research was conducted amidst a climate where technical and behavioural solutions to mine safety had achieved significant successes, but where the results were beginning to plateau in South Africa.
