Retour d’expérience sur la catastrophe de Coalbrook

Abstract : Understanding and management of hazards have always been largely supported by feedback analysis. This kind of process allows the experts to identify the causes of failures and/or accidents and the authorities to take measures to prevent such events not to occur any more. To consolidate its expertise INERIS systematises as much as possible this type of approach [A]. In close collaboration with the University of Johannesburg (Pr Nielen van der Merwe), a feedback analysis has been implemented on the disaster of Coalbrook mine (South Africa), an accident which will remain, forever, one more dramatic in the history of the mining industry (437 deaths due to spontaneous collapse of more than 300 ha).
