Abstract
The objective of this study was to determine optimal personal equipment design for use in low coal based on ergonomic, biomechanic, and safety considerations. To accomplish this, three principal tasks were to (1) summarize the state of the art with respect to personal equipment and its use in low seam coal mines, (2) empirically validate alternative designs for personal equipment, and (3) make recommendations on redesign of personal equipment for low seam coal mines. The report is a summary of the literature dealing with personal protective equipment that is now, or could be used in the underground mining environment. Recommendations for further research and development are included.
