Mining Product: Lifeline Tactile Signal Flashcards
Original creation date: August 2011
These flashcards are an easy way to go over the lifeline tactile signals quickly with the miners at your mine.
Two files are available. The first file contains large-sized flashcards which can be used for larger meetings, such as pre-shift safety talks. The second file contains smaller flashcards which may be cut out and used for smaller meetings, such as crew pre-shift meetings. Simply print out the flashcards and laminate them if possible, and you will be ready for a quick practice session with the miners.
- Download and extract the ZIP file to a folder on your hard disk.
- Open the PDF and print either large or small format flash cards. See instructions for printing below.
Instructions for printing the flash cards:
- Set printer settings to Full Duplex (print on both sides).
- Print in color.
- For small flashcards, cut apart. Laminate if desired to make the flashcards last longer.
