Abstract [en]

There is a major goal in the mining industry to reduce risks and maintain health in work environments. Moreover, the industry is obliged to monitor the risks in work environment as well as employers’ health statuses. The potentials in using ambient information for the purpose to reduce risks, prevent work-related injuries and monitor health in individuals has been explored. Applications tailored to the individual are being developed to aid the worker in mining or mining-related work environments in valuing the risks of their work situation and create awareness in the individual about how he or she can decrease risks for primarily physical damages. The purpose is to encourage the worker to act upon the level of risk for injuries, and upon the new insights the worker gain from the applications. The identified opportunities for and obstacles to integrating ambient information in these health applications are discussed.
