Development of Self-contained Self-rescuer and Enhanced Electrical Hazard Training Materials.
NTIS: PB/86-138914 :86 pages
It was the goal of this project to develop training materials specific to two areas of the mining industry: (1) safe use and care of the self-contained self-rescuers, and (2) awareness and avoidance of electrical hazards. This report describes the development of instructor's training modules for self-contained self-rescuers (ocenco eba 6.5, Cse au 9a1, and pass 700 e); a textbook, slide tapes, and accident case study scenarios for mine electricity; and a computer-based instructional package on mine electricity and electrical hazards. The report concludes that additional efforts are needed in mine training, and four recommendations are made: (1) tailor existing materials to fit specific minesites, (2) develop and evaluate computer-based instructional material, (3) develop parallel training materials for metal and nonmetal mines, and (4) develop additional training materials for preparation plants and surface areas of underground mines.
