The purpose of this study was to perfect a method of gathering information on work positions and Visual Attention Locations (VALs) needed by operators during the cutting phase and while the continuous miner trams to a new location. This study precedes a future investigation using the developed survey that will recommend injury prevention interventions based on the influence of work positions and VALs on the risk of potential injury.
