Abstract
This report describes a training program for mine hoist operators and a human factors study on the possibility of an information processing overload in mine hoist operators. The first effort addresses formalizing and accelerating the process of hoist operator training. This was achieved through the collection of task data, development of training objectives, specifications of controlled training exercises, and development of requisite training materials. Validation results are presented. The second effort, addressing hoist operator overload, investigated the potential overload of the hoist operator's abilities to process information and control the hoist. Data were gathered in the field during periods when the probability of operator overload was greatest. The data were analyzed and the conclusions drawn therefrom are presented.
