NTIS: PB/81-225872 :52 pages
The Bureau of Mines awarded a contract for the provision of recommendations on the safest, most practical methods for complying with new regulations requiring that all underground coal miners have a self-contained, self-rescuer (scsr)--a device capable of supplying, in an emergency, 1 hour of self-contained oxygen (no breathing of mine air). This report presents information and recommendations that could be used during the early stages of nationwide compliance, especially in the areas of inspection, testing, and underground storage of scsr's. This volume contains an executive summary, introduction, definitions, recommended guidelines for district managers and mine operators, and a storage plan checklist and sample form.
