Abstract
The purpose of this research was to identify hazards associated with roof bolting and to make recommendations for procedural and equipment design changes to reduce those hazards. The project reviewed literature on related research, collected and analyzed roof bolting injury data, normalized the injury data by exposure time to each activity, and identified problem areas within the roof bolting tasks. Field data collection forms were prepared and mines selected for fieldwork. The study produced over 50 specific recommendations involving machine design, procedural safety training, and supervisional issues that could lead to reduced roof bolter injuries.
