Abstract
The second part of the final report describes the need for safety improvements on auger-type continuous miners in terms of auger rotation control and provides recommendations for design changes to satisfy this need. Volume 7 provides designs developed to facilitate and accelerate auger rotation stoppage (and auger rotation startup so as to promote auger disengagement during auger miner repositioning). The designs include a time delay and warning signal prior to auger startup to permit any miners near the augers to get away from the augers before they start rotating.
