Abstract
As part of the Bureau of Mines research program to improve the health and safety of miners and the productivity of the U.S. mining industry, several projects have looked at the design of surface mining vehicles with regard to ergonomic considerations. The areas of research included aspects of ingress-egress, collison avoidance, cab control placement, rollover protective structures, operator restraint, exposure to vibration and noise, maintenance and repair, operator alertness, fire protection, and novel truck designs. Summaries of past research results are presented here to familiarize the reader with the extent of the Bureau's work into the operational human-factors considerations employed in the design of surface mining vehicles.
