"What do your miners know about taking refuge?"
Holmes Saf Assn Bull 2011 Aug-Oct; :6-11
The ultimate goals of a comprehensive training program on refuge alternatives are: 1. an increased probability that miners will use chambers when appropriate, 2. a decreased probability that miners will use chambers when it is not their best course of action, and 3. an increased probability that miners who choose to enter a chamber will know how to use it correctly.
