Abstract
This project required the application of modern human engineering technology to effect a reduction of human error and a reduction of accidents associated with underground mining equipment. These kinds of accidents have been growing in number and have been related to a variety of underground electric face equipment. The general problem was to integrate and extend past research efforts that have applied human engineering technology in the design of safer electric face equipment. The specific problem was to develop optimized operator compartments that could be fitted to the following electric face equipment: loaders, continuous miners, shuttle cars, roof bolters, face drills, cutters, and scoops. In all, 89 models of various types of underground electric face equipment are included in this study. The drawings are intended to be used as guidelines and not fabrication-type drawings. Three mockups were constructed to illustrate the principles of the optimized operator compartments.
