Abstract
There is a growing body of empirical research relating to miners' self-contained self-rescuer (scsr) donning proficiency. Performance data is derived from two sources: (1) random sampling of miners and evaluation of their donning skills; and (2) interviews with miners who have used the apparatus to escape a mine fire. Two issues are important: the first relates to initial training; the second deals with methods for maintaining acceptable proficiency over time. This paper addresses the issue of how one might maintain scsr donning capabilities throughout the year given a once a year commitment to hands-on training. Topics include a description of data relating to donning skills degradation, discussion of a method for sampling miners to ascertain their level of mastery, and the use of a memory aid for enhancing scsr donning proficiency. The manuscript provides an overview of these studies and summarizes 5 years of research in the area of scsr training and donning performance.
