Illumination of Electric Powered, Mobile Surface Mining Equipment.
NTIS: PB/82-244237 :117 pages
Only a minimum amount of illumination is generally provided for many types of mobile surface mining equipment. This condition presents a hazard to personnel working on and around such equipment. To reduce the hazard, MSHA has proposed safety regulations requiring minimum levels of illumination for hazardous zones on and in the immediate area surrounding surface mining equipment. This report describes a Bureau of Mines sponsored project demonstrating the feasibility and effectiveness of providing dragline illumination in compliance with the proposed MSHA regulations. Descriptions of the computer-aided design, onsite installation, and field evaluation of individual lighting systems for each of three different size draglines are presented.
