Nonverbal Communication for Mine Emergencies is a training program that teaches miners a series of nonverbal hand signals to use in the event of an emergency. These hand signals can be used by miners if they have donned an SCSR and are unable to communicate verbally. The training program includes a Microsoft PowerPoint instructional presentation, several partner/group training activities, and a Microsoft PowerPoint retention test.
