At the request of the Association paritaire pour la santé et la sécurité du travail du secteur minier (APSM, a joint association for occupational health and safety in the mining industry), researchers studied the conditions facilitating the safe integration of workers in the mining industry. Five mines, two open-pit and three underground, participated in the project. Various heavy machinery and boom truck operator jobs, as well as the job of a miner assigned to rehabilitating existing tunnels, were the subject of case studies conducted through interviews and the observation of work activities over the equivalent of 29 days. The goal was to highlight the circumstances that could impact task-related training and the transfer of job knowledge and prevention knowledge.
