Trust has been identified as important in facilitating improved outcomes in work health and safety through improved communication, co-operation, acceptance of decisions, knowledge sharing, organisational functioning, and other means. Trust (and mistrust) is a particular concern in the Australian mining industry. This paper examines how mistrust may be overcome and strategies for nurturing trust, between management and workers, between corporate and mine site management, and between management and unions.
