From the past until now, regardless of the type of extracted mineral, safety has always been one of the fundamental issues in the mining industry. Due to the importance of the issue, different methods have been developed for risk assessment in industries, including the mining industry. Regardless of whether any of these methods and techniques are usual or not in the mining industry, the selection of the appropriate risk assessment method depends on many factors such as the type of hazards, the availability of data, resources and appropriate expertise, as well. Despite the importance of the risk assessment, in many Iranian mines, some of which include large mines, there is a lack of appropriate and scientific approach to the issue. Accordingly, in the present paper, we have tried to examine the application of analytical hierarchy process as a quantitative method for risk assessment with a special focus on the mining industry, especially in open pit mines. Therefore, the analysis is performed by collecting experts grading to determine the weights of important accident-causing factors at various levels of a working system in open pit mines.
