Abstract
Flame Cutting and Welding in underground coal mines is a very exacting procedure requiring skilled execution and strict adherence to federal regulations, company policies, and agreed upon best practices. Among the many hazards dealt with every day by welders underground are coal dust, methane and other gases and fumes, and compressed oxygen and acetylene. This calendar is one component of a flame cutting and welding training toolbox designed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health with input from underground miners in six different states.
