Mining Publication: Technology News 482 - Ground Support Safety Training Video
Effective training tools are developed for underground metal/nonmetal mines. Videos that focus on safe practices during the mining cycle are being produced. Two videos - one on handling explosives underground and one on identifying roof hazards and proper scaling techniques - were completed during 1999, and a third video is now available. This video, entitled "Ground Support...It's Important, or Miner Mike Saves the Day," presents information on why ground supports work and how to install them properly.
