Abstract
The NIOSH Pittsburgh Research Lab has designed a system (Hazardous Area Signaling and Ranging Device, HASARD), which has the potential to improve the safety of underground coal mining machine (CM) operators and their helpers. Preliminary testing has shown that the concepts and the techniques employed appear workable. Planned underground tests will determine the viability of the whole system concept. HASARD has shown potential for implementation beyond mining. Other uses could be at any workplace where people work in close proximity to machines, such as construction sites, agricultural, and warehouse operations.
