At present, the Coal-mine industry calls for a reliable method for evaluating “zero harm” safety cultural construction performance. On the basis of an analysis of various factors affecting “zero harm” safety cultural construction performance, a comprehensive index system for evaluating safety cultural construction performance is built. The analytical hierarchy process (AHP) and the theory of Fuzzy Comprehensive Evaluation (FCE) are employed to build an AHP-FCE Model for coal-mine zero harm safety culture, thus providing a scientific and practical quantitative method for systematic analyses and comprehensive evaluations of coal-mine zero harm safety culture. This model is used to analyze the “zero harm” safety cultural construction performance of BLA. Analytical results show that the AHP-based “zero harm” safety culture evaluation index system has a great practical applicability. It can be applied to provide a solid foundation for enterprises to improve their strategic goals of “zero harm” safety culture construction”, so it should be popularized and widely applied.
