Abstract
Based on Bureau of Mines field evaluations of self-contained self- rescuer (scsr) donning proficiency and interviews with miners who have used the devices in mine emergencies, there appears to be a clear need for companies to carefully appraise their scsr training protocol. The purpose of training workers on these oxygen breathing apparatus should not be just to comply with federal regulations but to ensure that workers are adequately prepared to put on and use a device for its intended purpose: to escape an unbreathable mine atmosphere.
