Abstract
Part construction crew, part demolition crew: underground miners deal with both creation and destruction in a typical day. Though explosives are safer than ever before, caution is still needed when dealing with such a powerful force. This video teaches new miners basic safety rules to keep from hurting themselves or others while handling explosives.
