Abstract
The objective of this study was to identify the characteristics of underground jobs and work locations in metal and nonmetal mining to determine the illumination needs and to suggest improvements for safety. Four analyses were conducted: (1) onsite measurement and evaluation of underground work sites, (2) task analysis of underground jobs, (3) laboratory analysis of the gonioreflectance of rocks and minerals from sampled mines, and (4) identification and analysis of the accidents and the employment distribution of this industry. The report describes the illumination characteristics of the underground jobs and locations and suggests that illumination needs are primarily determined by the tasks being performed.
