Abstract
In 1985 Bureau of Mines and University of Kentucky researchers began a series of studies related to self-contained self-rescuer donning proficiency. During the next five years investigators examined a number of factors that have a bearing upon miners' ability to put on and use the apparatus in an emergency: the procedure being taught; availability and utilization of training models; opportunities to practice; hygiene, and on-the-job training. The paper presents an overview of that research. It is concluded that companies should adopt a hands-on training protocol which allows them to integrate SCSR donning practice into other workplace routines, such as fire drills.
