Recommended Guidelines for Oxygen Self-rescuers - Volume IV - Underground Non-coal Mining.
Berry R; Mitchell DW
NTIS: PB/84-166636 :176 pages
The Bureau of Mines initiated a contract for the development of guidelines for the storage and use of self-contained self-rescuers (scsr) in underground noncoal mines. An scsr is a device capable of supplying, in an emergency, 1 h of self-contained oxygen (no breathing of mine air). The information and recommendations in this report were developed primarily from three sources: discussions with mine representatives (including management, labor, and government), site visits in underground mines, and a detailed analysis of every reported noncoal accident that produced hazardous atmosphere during the 5-yr period 1976-80, plus 10 other major incidents from prior years.
