Abstract
Evaluation methods for powered respirators for use in underground coal mines are discussed. Characteristics of ten candidate respirator systems are summarized together with their individual maintenance and support requirements. The basic considerations for mine test site selection are reviewed such as mining method, crew size, mine operation and management practices, size and productivity, geologic and environmental factors, and accessibility. Test methodology development with consideration to mines and task compatibility, task and respirator interactions, test scheduling, and acceptability measures is reviewed. The development of interview methods and questionnaires for obtaining the subjective opinions of miners are described.
