An effective training tool, the BG 4 Benching Trainer software, now helps to reinforce the critical skills that mine rescue team members must possess to accurately "bench" closed-circuit breathing apparatus. This software supplements traditional hands-on training through a 3D interactive environment in which rescue personnel can practice benching a virtual Draeger BG 4 apparatus. Knowledge of critical benching skills helps in maintaining the integrity of breathing apparatus and in keeping mine rescue team members safe during mine emergencies.
