It is estimated that in the last decade, falls of ground caused 25% of all lost time injuries and 40% of all fatal accidents in Western Australian underground mines. This one-year industry project created arguably the most comprehensive database on rockfalls, investigating more than 750 incidents that occurred between 1993 and 2001. The research findings provide industry with an essential source of information to reduce the incidence of rockfall related injuries and accidents.
