Abstract:

The present study was designed to explore the contribution of organizational climate and management practices to the injury experience in underground coal mines. A cross-lagged panel design was used in which miners from 22 mines completed questionnaires assessing 27 organizational climate, structure, and function dimensions on two occasions. The results strongly support the hypothesis that climate and management practice have a casual effect on the incidence of disabling injuries. Author
