    From grounded skills to sky qualifications: a study of workers creating and recreating qualifications, identity and gender at an underground iron ore mine in Sweden2006In: Journal of Industrial Relations, ISSN 0022-1856, E-ISSN 1472-9296, Vol. 48, no 5, p. 657-676Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over a period of 50 years at Kiruna iron ore mine in the far north of Sweden we can see a transformation of work from underground to remote control at surface level. What characterized the old underground workface was the close relation between man and the hard rock centred on arduous physical work under dangerous conditions. Today, the face miners are located ‘up in the sky' on the seventh level of an office building close to the mine. The workers leave their job at the end of the shift just as clean as when they arrived. The contact with the hard rock is mediated by machines controlled by remote control technology. The modern technology has created a new type of work - new in terms of competencies and knowledge as well as workload. The purpose of this article is to reflect on the technical development of underground mining in Kiruna and to consider the implications it has had on qualifications, identity and gender. There is an emerging, and in many aspects already evident, knowledge transformation - from the old and obsolete physical and tacit knowledge and skills (for example the ability to ‘read the rock') to something new which can be described as abstract knowledge. But the old culture still provides an important context for workplace learning and the construction of identity and gender. This is associated with a degree of ‘worker identity lag' and to difficulties in adapting attitudes and norms to the demands and structures that result from the new technology and the new work tasks. The new forms of work in the mine have less need for the traditional mining competencies, attitudes and ideals. The traditional workplace culture and its ‘macho tyle' have also been challenged. Workers have to find new ways to learn and to develop a workplace culture more attuned to a new type of worker identity and masculinity.

    Future mining: workers' skills, identity and gender when meeting changing technology2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to discuss how to form work and organisations in the mines of the future. The Kiruna underground iron ore mine in the far north of Sweden is used as an example on how technical development affects organisational issues like skills, work identity and gender. Over a period of 50 years one can see a transformation of work from manual underground work to automation and remote control from surface level. What characterised the old underground workface was the close relation between man and the hard rock and with arduous physical work under dangerous conditions. Today, the face miners are located on the seventh level of an office building close to the mine. There is also an emerging, and in many aspects already evident, knowledge transformation - from the old and obsolete physical and tacit knowledge and skills (for example the ability to ‘read the rock') to something new, which can be described as abstract ‘high-tech' knowledge and skills. The modern technology has created a new type of work - new in terms of competencies and knowledge as well as workload and organisation. At the same time the mining company are recruiting more women and promoting the former pure male work as attractive workplaces for both women and men. All this has effects on how individuals and company create and recreate skills, identity and gender. To some extent the technological development predestines these changes, but there are some choices to be done when forming good work and organisations for the mines of the future. The traditional mining workplace culture and behaviours and the old type of masculinity, the ‘macho' style, will be challenged by the new ‘high-tech' work and new competency demands. The changes risk meeting restoring responses, which can have negative impact on the performance of the organisation, for example making it inflexible and perhaps ‘lagging' behind the technological development. These questions need to be handled when planning future mining.

    One hundred years if Inertia: an exposé of the concept of the psychosocial work environment in Swedish policy and research2013In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, ISSN 2245-0157, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 5-29Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to describe a broader concept of the psychosocial work environment, a concept that not only is limited to the individual and her immediate environment but also takes into account a broader context that includes production technology as well as work organization and learning. Based on examples from Sweden, we discuss concepts and approaches to psychosocial work environment and how these have changed over time (e.g., how knowledge about the psychosocial work environment is used to understand and discuss health, management, and development—for individuals, groups, and organizations). The knowledge presented is not new; it has been around a long time. The title of the article—One Hundred Years of Inertia—shows some impatience on the part of its authors given that the pace of change in the work environment has not always been great.

    Abstract [sv]

    I Kirunagruvan kan vi under en period på 50 år följa förändringen av produktionsarbetet från ett tungt och farligt underjordsarbete till fjärrstyrning via modern teknik i en trygg kontorsmiljö. Syftet med artikeln är att reflektera över en kunskapsförvandling från äldre tiders hantverkskunnande med kroppsliga och tysta kunskaper till något nytt. I artikeln diskuterar vi hur individ och organisation skapar och återskapar kvalifikationer, identiteter och kön i mötet med ny teknik och nya organisationsformer.

    How to Get a Social Licence to Mine2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the paper is to discuss socially sustainable development in the mining industry and the communities surrounding the mines. The discussions are based on results from a prestudy and literature review on mining and sustainable development conducted during 2013–2014 at Luleå University of Technology in Sweden. ‘A social licence to mine’ is important for the mining industry, but the social dimension is a relatively underdeveloped dimension when it comes to sustainable development in general and the mining industry in particular, one reason probably being the lack of effective methods for capturing social impacts. The mining industry and the surrounding communities face many challenges that provide both possibilities and obstacles to socially sustainable development; eg aspects such as gender, work conditions and cultural aspects. For example, a strong mining workplace culture and community identity can createstrong cohesion but also lead to excluding certain groups, rejecting new ideas and reinforcing obsolete values. Other challenges include recruitment, as well as health and safety in relation to an increased use of fly-in-fly-out, contractors and automation of mining. Some challenges relate to the effects of fluctuations in the mining market. There is a lack of research that links attitudes, policies and activities within companies to their impact on the wider community, and vice versa. Future research should also include the development of methods and indicators for social sustainability relevant for mining – in other words: how do mining companies get ‘a social licence to mine’?

    Learning gaps in a learning organization: professionals' values versus management values2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a rhetoric emphasising that if work organisations become "learning organisation", the needs for learning are provided for. This idea is permeating work organisations not the least in the public sector where welfare sector professionals work. However, through a study on teachers´working conditions it becomes apparent that even if the school organisation claims to be a learning organisation, learning gaps can be identified. The study reveals that the conditions for learning are not optimal, despite the fact that the organisation claims to be a learning organisation. The study points at a tension between different forms of knowledge, knowledge valued by the organisation and knowledge valued by the professionals. In this article we discuss the concept of "learning organisations", by focusing on professionals´ own experiences of conditions for learning.

    Mining and Sustainable Development: Gender, Diversity and Work Conditions in Mining2014Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish mining companies and surrounding mining communities face many challenges when it comes to social sustainable development. For example, a strong mining workplace culture and community identity can create both strong cohesion but also lead to exclusion of certain groups, rejection of new ideas and reinforce traditional, masculine values. Other challenges include recruitment, as well as health and safety in relation to an increased use of contractors and automation of mining. The social dimension is relatively underdeveloped in studies of sustainable development in general and the mining industry in particular. This report reviews research on social sustainable development and mining with a special focus on (1) diversity of lifestyles, (2) gender, and (3) work conditions. Swedish and international research is reviewed and knowledge gaps are identified. All three areas of research can be regarded as relatively mature and they give important contributions to ourunderstanding of social sustainable development in relation to the mining sector even if they not always explicitly refer to it as such. There is a lack of research that links attitudes, policies and activities within companies to their impact on the wider society, and vice versa. Future research should also include the development of methods and indicators for social sustainability relevant for mining.

    Changing storylines and masculine bodies in Australian coal mining organisations2007In: Norma, ISSN 1890-2138, E-ISSN 1890-2146, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 52-69Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we are exploring gendered subjectivity and workplace change in male dominated industrial organizations. The empirical base is a study of Australian coal mining companies implementing new practices in workplace safety in underground coal mines. The starting point for the study was the mining companies' experiences of the continuing practical problem of translating training in safety into new and safe workplace practice in coal mining workplaces. Ethnographic interviews and observations were carried out in two parts, the first focussing on mine workers and second on safety and rescue trainers. We used the poststructural analytical concept of storylines (Sondergaard, 2002) and Butler's theorisation of gendered subjectivity to interpret the data. Our study found that practices of masculinity in local mining organizations are still strong, but there have been changes in the way masculinities are performed in the workplace. One characteristic of the new workplace culture is that the worker's body is becoming more important. Taking care of the body goes hand in hand with focusing on safety. This new kind of mine worker masculinity can therefore be seen as a way of handling the contradiction between storylines of the old hegemonic masculinity and the demands of safe work practices.
