Engineers and psychologists at the University of Kentucky and the U.S. Bureau of Mines have developed simulation exercises that teach mining technical personnel to cope with emergency situations in underground mines. Exercise content is derived from mine accident investigations. Exercise structure is based upon earlier research concerned with teaching and testing problem solving, judgment, and decision-making skills to personnel in technical fields other than mining.
