Develop, distribute, and evaluate unit specific SCSR care, maintenance, and inspection training modules to ensure that SCSRs are kept in good condition and all units that fail inspection are removed from service. Insure miners know how SCSRs work.
Interagency Agreement with MSHA to develop and evaluate unit specific training for each SCSR
Training module consists of:
Computer Based Training
Work with MSHA on expectation training
Training modules will help miners inspect and maintain their SCSRs in a ready condition and what to expect from their respirators once donned. In addition, miners will know how to perform multiple donnings and what to expect when wearing a SCSR.
