Abstract
Guidelines were developed to provide mine management with recommended tire inspection procedures for operating, maintenance, and supervisory personnel. These guidelines were developed from accident statistics that indicated when, how, and where the accident occurred; industry contributions resulting from mine and manufacturers visits; and the evaluation of the preliminary guidelines by three operating mines. This report describes the basic aspects of tire and rim selection and use. Tire users are provided with a tire evaluation program that can contribute to improved safety and better tire application. Statistical accident data, accident reports, and a bibliography are included to emphasize the mining industry's contribution and concern with tire operation and safety.
