Abstract
There has been a significant amount of recent research investigating how to improve the protection to miners working in enclosed cabs. Many of these studies have investigated retrofitting older cabs at surface operations with new filtration and pressurization systems. From this research, we have identified a number of significant factors that determine how effective an enclosed cab will be at protecting a worker.
