Abstract
Operation of electric face equipment in underground coal mines has proven to be extremely hazardous to mining personnel, including equipment operators and others working in the vicinity of active equipment. The lack of standardization of controls can produce a high incidence of error in the operation of electric face equipment, thus creating a potential source of accidents. Final recommendations for standardization were formulated into three categories: general design criteria, general operator control design, and specific machine-type operator control design criteria.
