"Short Film regarding Mine Safety". Mine safety refers to the management of operations and events within the mining industry, for protecting miners by minimizing hazards, risks and accidents. Most of the safety issues related to mining are addressed in the relevant laws, compliance and best practices that are to be considered for the best possible protection of the mining workers. Employers are to abide by the laws and practices to ensure the maximum observances of safety. Mine safety is designed to prevent death, disease and injury in the mining industry and to promote safe workplaces for the miners. Mine safety covers a number of issues and topics effecting safety of personnel and equipment in the mining industry. The following topics are typical when discussing mine safety: General safety - general aspects of safety which are common to all types of mines (electrical and machine safety) Occupational safety and health - Issues particularly associated to the mining. These include: blasting explosives, ergonomics, diesel and dust control and hearing loss etc. Process and production safety - Safety within the processes associated with mining Workplace safety - Safety issues directly related to the workplace (Ex. ventilation) Fire and explosion safety - In particular, the risks associated to fires and explosions in the mining industry Structural safety - Safety in mine construction and geologic characterization Environmental safety - Issues of environmental safety (direct or indirect impact of the mining industry).

A belt conveyor system is one of many types of conveyor systems. A belt conveyor system consists of two or more pulleys (sometimes referred to as drums), with an endless loop of carrying medium—the conveyor belt—that rotates about them. One or both of the pulleys are powered, moving the belt and the material on the belt forward. The powered pulley is called the drive pulley while the unpowered pulley is called the idler pulley. There are two main industrial classes of belt conveyors; Those in general material handling such as those moving boxes along inside a factory and bulk material handling such as those used to transport large volumes of resources and agricultural materials, such as grain, salt, coal, ore, sand, overburden and more. Today there are different types of conveyor belts that have been created for conveying different kinds of material available in PVC and rubber materials. The belt consists of one or more layers of material. Many belts in general material handling have two layers. An under layer of material to provide linear strength and shape called a carcass and an over layer called the cover. The carcass is often a woven fabric having a warp & weft. The most common carcass materials are polyester, nylon and cotton. The cover is often various rubber or plastic compounds specified by use of the belt. Covers can be made from more exotic materials for unusual applications such as silicone for heat or gum rubber when traction is essential. Material flowing over the belt may be weighed in transit using a beltweigher. Belts with regularly spaced partitions, known as elevator belts, are used for transporting loose materials up steep inclines. Belt Conveyors are used in self-unloading bulk freighters and in live bottom trucks. Belt conveyor technology is also used in conveyor transport such as moving sidewalks or escalators, as well as on many manufacturing assembly lines. Stores often have conveyor belts at the check-out counter to move shopping items. Ski areas also use conveyor belts to transport skiers up the hill. Some of the major global conveyor belt service providers are Terra Nova Technologies, ThyssenKrupp, HESE Maschinenfabrik GmbH and Tenova Takraf... Belt conveyor safety system Conveyors used in industrial settings include tripping mechanisms such as trip cords along the length of the conveyor. This allows for workers to immediately shut down the conveyor when a problem arises. Warning alarms are included to notify employees that a conveyor is about to turn on. In the United States, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued regulations for conveyor safety, as OSHA 1926.555. History Primitive conveyor belts were used since the 19th century. In 1892, Thomas Robins began a series of inventions which led to the development of a conveyor belt used for carrying coal, ores and other products. In 1901, Sandvik invented and started the production of steel conveyor belts. In 1905 Richard Sutcliffe invented the first conveyor belts for use in coal mines which revolutionized the mining industry. In 1913, Henry Ford introduced conveyor-belt assembly lines at Ford Motor Company's Highland Park, Michigan factory. In 1972, the French society REI created in New Caledonia the then longest straight-belt conveyor in the world, at a length of 13.8 km. Hyacynthe Marcel Bocchetti was the concept designer. In 1957, the B. F. Goodrich Company patented a conveyor belt that it went on to produce as the Turnover Conveyor Belt System. Incorporating a half-twist, it had the advantage over conventional belts of a longer life because it could expose all of its surface area to wear and tear. Möbius strip belts are no longer manufactured because untwisted modern belts can be made more durable by constructing them from several layers of different materials. In 1970, Intralox, a Louisiana-based company, registered the first patent for all plastic, modular belting...

Scotia Mine Explosion 1976 Part 1 of 5 Letcher County notes the tragic mine explosions that occurred at Scotia Mine in 1976. The accidents are noted as being one of the worst mine disasters in U.S. history. When industrial coal mining came to the mountains of southeastern Kentucky in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, it brought both positives and negatives. On the one hand, mining operations brought a steady paycheck to those who had largely lived by the alternating fortunes of farming. Conversely, the mines brought a sense of employment dependence and often unsafe working conditions. By the mid-1900s, mining safety had improved drastically from just a few years before. Battery powered lamps had replaced carbide lanterns and continuous automated mining equipment had taken over for the pick and shovel and draft animals. But, due to the nature of the work, accidents still injured miners. The Scotia Mine began operations in 1962 and was a subsidiary of the Blue Diamond Coal Company. It was located in the Ovenfork Community of Letcher County, about fourteen miles northeast of the town of Cumberland (Harlan County, Kentucky). On March 9, 1976, at approximately 11:45 a.m., an explosion caused by coal dust and gasses rocked the Scotia mine. Two days later, a second explosion happened. The first explosion killed fifteen miners; the second killed eleven. Investigators believed that the explosions were caused by methane gasses that were ignited by a spark caused by a battery-powered locomotive or another electric device. A lack of ventilation figured prominently in the accidents. The explosions at Scotia led to the passage of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977. This law strengthened the previously passed 1969 act, which, at the time, had been the most significant legislation on mine safety ever adopted in the U.S. The 1977 law also moved the Mine Safety and Health Administration from the Department of the Interior to the Department of Labor.

This clip is part of an early respirator training film. Today in the US, employer must provide training to employees who are required to use respirators. The training must be comprehensive, understandable, and be done, at least, annually, and more often if necessary. This training should include: 1) why the respirator is necessary and how improper fit, use, or maintenance can compromise its protective effect; 2) the limitations and capabilities of the respirator; 3) how to inspect, put on and remove, use and check the seals (for tight-fitting types); 4) how to maintain and store the respirator; 5) how to recognize medical signs and symptoms that may limit or prevent effective use of a respirator; and, 6) the general requirements of OSHA's respirator standard, 29 CFR 1910.134. For examples of good respirator training, go to the Online Curricula Catalog of the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHSWorker Education and Training Program (WETP) at http://tools.niehs.nih.gov/wetp/index.cfm?id=603 . Since 1987, the NIEHS WETP has supported the development of curricula and the initiation of training programs throughout the country to help meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements under 29 CFR 1910.120, Hazardous Waste Operations & Emergency Response (HAZWOPER). This is clipped from the 1940s film, The Air We Breathe, a ppromotional documentary from the Mine Safety Appliances Company (MSA) on the importance of the air respirator to industrial health and safety. At the end, the film explains that industry and government cooperation has removed the "menace in the air" and urges workers in various industries to use the respirator. This film is available from the National Archives (NARA).

"Emphasizes the safety of those who must work around bins and hoppers and acquaints them with the potential hazards of entering these and other material storage areas. Encourages workers to follow the safe and correct operating procedures that apply to their jobs." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mining#Safety Safety has long been a concern in the mining business especially in sub-surface mining. The Courrières mine disaster, Europe's worst mining accident, involved the death of 1,099 miners in Northern France on March 10, 1906. This disaster was surpassed only by the Benxihu Colliery accident in China on April 26, 1942, which killed 1,549 miners. While mining today is substantially safer than it was in previous decades, mining accidents still occur. Government figures indicate that 5,000 Chinese miners die in accidents each year, while other reports have suggested a figure as high as 20,000. Mining accidents continue worldwide, including accidents causing dozens of fatalities at a time such as the 2007 Ulyanovskaya Mine disaster in Russia, the 2009 Heilongjiang mine explosion in China, and the 2010 Upper Big Branch Mine disaster in the United States. Mining ventilation is a significant safety concern for many miners. Poor ventilation inside sub-surface mines causes exposure to harmful gases, heat, and dust, which can cause illness, injury, and death. The concentration of methane and other airborne contaminants underground can generally be controlled by dilution (ventilation), capture before entering the host air stream (methane drainage), or isolation (seals and stoppings). Rock dusts, including coal dust and silicon dust, can cause long-term lung problems including silicosis, asbestosis, and pneumoconiosis (also known as miners lung or black lung disease). A ventilation system is set up to force a stream of air through the working areas of the mine. The air circulation necessary for effective ventilation of a mine is generated by one or more large mine fans, usually located above ground. Air flows in one direction only, making circuits through the mine such that each main work area constantly receives a supply of fresh air. Watering down in coal mines also helps to keep dust levels down: by spraying the machine with water and filtering the dust-laden water with a scrubber fan, miners can successfully trap the dust. Gases in mines can poison the workers or displace the oxygen in the mine, causing asphyxiation... Ignited methane gas is a common source of explosions in coal mines... Miners utilize equipment strong enough to break through extremely hard layers of the Earth's crust. This equipment, combined with the closed work space in which underground miners work, can cause hearing loss... Since mining entails removing dirt and rock from its natural location, thereby creating large empty pits, rooms, and tunnels, cave-ins as well as ground and rock falls are a major concern within mines. Modern techniques for timbering and bracing walls and ceilings within sub-surface mines have reduced the number of fatalities due to cave-ins, but ground falls continue to represent up to 50% of mining fatalities. Even in cases where mine collapses are not instantly fatal, they can trap mine workers deep underground. Cases such as these often lead to high-profile rescue efforts, such as when 33 Chilean miners were trapped deep underground for 69 days in 2010. High temperatures and humidity may result in heat-related illnesses, including heat stroke, which can be fatal. The presence of heavy equipment in confined spaces also poses a risk to miners. To improve the safety of mine workers, modern mines use automation and remote operation including, for example, such equipment as automated loaders and remotely operated rockbreakers. However, despite modern improvements to safety practices, mining remains a dangerous occupation throughout the world...

Studs Terkel narrates this fast-paced history of occupational health and safety in the U.S. from the Industrial Revolution to the 1970s, which OSHA released in 1980. Rare archival footage and photos illustrate the problems behind dramatic tragedies as well as the daily dangers that put workers at risk for long-term health problems. It also connects the health and safety movement with the civil rights and environmental movements. This is one of three wonderful films produced and distributed by OSHA during the administration of Dr. Eula Bingham - Can't Take No More; Worker to Worker; and OSHA. Then in 1981, the new head of OSHA, under the Reagan Administration, Thorne Auchter recalled most copies and they disappeared. A few copies were kept alive by union officials who refused to return their copies. The penalty for being discovered in possession of one of these films was losing all OSHA funding for their safety and health programs. This was recalled by Tom Lynch on his blog Workers' Comp Insider at http://www.workerscompinsider.com/archives/000698.html " [in 1975] when I became the Director of the Army's safety efforts throughout New England, and would travel up and down the east coast lecturing on safety and health, it was obvious that OSHA was a big stick. In 1979, with assistance from the AFL-CIO, OSHA produced a 27-minute movie called "Can't Take It No More." Narrated by Studs Terkel, it carried a powerful message, offering a history of the safety movement in America and targeting worker health. As part of our program, my training department would screen the film repeatedly over the next year and a half for soldiers and civilian employees. In 1981, one of the first things the new Reagan administration did as it began to reverse OSHA's aggressive thrust by ushering in "voluntary compliance," was to recall all governmental copies of "Can't Take It No More" and forbid any organization seeking government funding for a safety program from showing the film. I recall having to box up our three copies and send them back to Washington, DC, where they were to be destroyed. That was when I knew that, for OSHA, the good times were over ...

A mining safety engineer probably does exactly what you think he or she might do. He is involved in the safety of mining operations. This means both overall doing what is necessary to keep workers safe in a mining environment, but also to keep a business, industry or operation in compliance with regulations. To do this successfully, a mining safety engineer draws upon his knowledge of the design and practices of mines of varying types, as well as a working knowledge of those regulations and standards.

Mo matter what kind of work you do, and no matter where you work, there are hazards. Some are created by you as you go through your normal workday, and plenty are created by others. Don't become a victim of hazards. Forklifts, elevators, scaffolding, stairways, wet floors, poor walking surfaces, lack of training, removed safeties and machine guards, bad storage, poor policies and poor training are among the hazards that cause fatal accidents on a daily basis. Be aware of your surroundings and know what you, and all the others working around you, are doing. Construction, warehousing, hospitals, factories and even quiet offices have hazards virtually around every corner. Never miss a new safety video!

Learn how the CalTrak line of primary standard gas flow calibration systems offers end-users fast, easy and accurate mass flow meter and controller validation and calibration in a wide range of applications. Discover the full line at: http://www.sierrainstruments.com/products/flow-calibrators.html Primary standard gas flow calibration systems deliver world-class levels of precision and traceability to flow, reliability and quality labs, or critical industrial hygiene, occupational health, and environmental tools. Primary standard calibrators have wide acceptance for quality control in the manufacturing of air samplers, gas chromatographs, mine safety appliances, OSHA --required respirators and masks, and in hospital and medical devices. For the most accurate calibrations, your gas flow calibration systems should be based on primary standards, not transfer standards. Primary standards are characterized by the basic quantities of time and distance, while transfer or secondary standards, such as laminar flow elements, are calibrated against another device, generally another flow meter. They can also be verified by every national laboratory. This guarantees that the main objective of any calibration is met: reliable, accurate calibrations that are easily traceable to national standards. Sierra Instruments offers a wide range of high-performance digital mass flow meters and controllers, all based on primary standard calibration. This core competency has been extended to the CalTrak line of primary standard calibration systems. These products offer end-users primary standard gas mass flow and volume calibrators for a wide range of applications. All of the flow calibration systems are manufactured to ISO 17025 standards at a NVLAP accredited lab using assets that are directly traceable to NIST. Battery-operated portability, ease-of-use and above all accuracy, are the hallmarks of the CalTrak line of primary flow standards. CalTrak features easy to use push button interface and our CalSoft software. This software makes it fast and easy for end users to collect and use the data they need. Let's look at the entire product line. The CalTrak 500 has plus or minus 0.35% of reading mass flow accuracy and a flow range from 5 sccm up to 50 slpm. The CalTrak 800 is our top of the line modular unit at a mass flow accuracy of plus or minus 0.15% of reading and an expanded flow range from 5 sccm up to 100 slpm. Each system comes with a base and three modular flow cells that can be easily switched out depending on flow rate. Save money by buying only the cell you need, or buy all three for ultimate flexibility. Both models are for inert gases only, ideally suited for Mass Flow Meter and Mass Flow Control calibration for owners and users of many instruments (more than 25) that require calibration/verification one or more times a year. The CalTrak 850 is a high accuracy all-in-one configuration optimized to calibrate or verify mass flow controllers used in the semiconductor industry. Semiconductor gases are toxic or corrosive, and the 850 has been designed with wetted materials that are compatible with many of these gases. End-users transport the portable 850 for factory floor measurements, turn on and start taking measurements. This saves large semiconductor manufacturers thousands of dollars in calibration costs of their mass flow controllers. For very high flows, choose the CalTrak XL. It is designed to replace old-fashioned bell-prover technology. The XL can flow up to 500 slpm with plus or minus 0.25% of reading accuracy and up to 1500 slpm at 0.30% reading accuracy. The CalTrak 300 is the most economical product in the line. The 300 is a primary standard gas flow volume only calibrator for the industrial hygiene and occupational health industries. Since these calibrations are usually made at atmospheric pressure, most users only require volumetric readings at relatively low flows. The flow range is from 5 ccm up to 30,000 ccm (30 L/min) and the volumetric accuracy is plus or minus 0.1% of reading. This portable calibrator is used primarily for quality control in the manufacturing of respirator equipment, personal sampling pumps and other industrial hygiene equipment. Other key markets include occupational safety and health, administration-mandated respirators and masks, mine safety appliances (MSA), military and many large hospital supply companies. The CalTrak 350 is our economical primary standard gas mass flow calibrator for industrial and environmental applications. The 350 offers calibrations and verification of critical industrial and environmental tools, including quality control for manufacturers of air samplers, gas chromatographs, and particle counters. Typically, these devices contain other mass flow meters or controllers which need to be verified during the manufacturing process. The accuracy is plus or minus 1% of reading mass flow rate with flow ranges from 5 sccm up to 50 slpm.

Blasting is an activity associated with open pit mining of industrial minerals in Missouri. There has been confusion among the public about who to contact concerning blasting at an industrial mineral open pit mine site. The misconception is that the Land Reclamation Program regulates blasting at open pit industrial mineral mine sites. Blasting at industrial mineral open pit mine sites is regulated by the Missouri Division of Fire Safety, Missouri Blasting Safety Act. Therefore, the Land Reclamation Program created a video to inform the public about land reclamation requirements for open pit mining operations as well as information about the Missouri Blasting Safety Act and the Missouri Division of Fire Safety. This video helps to clarify the distinction between Land Reclamation Program and Missouri Division of Fire Safety roles at industrial mineral open pit mine operations. http://dnr.mo.gov/env/lrp/ Acknowledgements: Idea creator: Mr. Don Cripe, Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

Silicosis is an incurable lung disease caused by inhalation of dust that contains free crystalline silica. Overexposure to dust that contains microscopic particles of crystalline silica can cause scar tissue to form in the lungs, which reduces the lungs ability to extract oxygen from the air we breathe. Typical sand found at the beach does not pose a silicosis threat. Despite all efforts to prevent it, silicosis still afflicts tens of millions of workers in hazardous occupations and kills thousands of people every year, everywhere in the world. With its potential to cause progressive and permanent physical disability, silicosis continues to be one of the most important occupational health illnesses in the world. The experience of some countries has convincingly demonstrated that it is possible to reduce significantly the incidence of silicosis with well-organized prevention programs (Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, United Kingdom and the United States). In the absence of effective specific treatment of silicosis, the only way to protect workers' health is the control of exposure to silica-containing dusts. The successful prevention of silicosis is clearly the result of a range of preventive measures. At the national level, laws and regulations, enforcement of occupational exposure limits and technical standards, technical advisory services, an effective system of inspection, a well-organized reporting system, and a national action programme involving governmental agencies, industry and trade unions constitute the necessary elements of a sound infrastructure which is needed to prevent silicosis successfully. At the enterprise level, application of appropriate technologies to avoid the formation of silica-containing dust, use of engineering methods of dust control, compliance with exposure limits and technical standards, surveillance of the work environment to assess effectiveness of preventive measures, surveillance of workers' health to detect early stages of silicosis, use of personal protective equipment (as a temporary measure), as well as health education, information and training are imperative for successful prevention. For more about silicosis and its prevention, go to http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/2004-108/ . This is clipped from the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) 2001 video, A Best Practice Guide to the Milling of Slate (13 minutes). The video is designed to raise awareness of the dust and noise hazards associated with the slate industry. It also shows common methods to control silica dust during work with slate. The video is available from the MSHA website and from Internet Archive.

There’s been a lot of confusion regarding OSHA’s upcoming HazCom 2012 standards, how GHS is incorporated and what a compliant HazCom label looks like. Before the HazCom 2012 standards went into effect, OSHA’s rules for labeling hazardous materials were called Right-To-Know, or RTK standards. Under the RTK standards employers were required to label chemical hazards but were not given label format requirements. This meant multiple label formats were created and used, which led to confusion. This short video will go over what a HazCom compliant label looks like, the elements that comprise it, and the newly required elements of a safety data sheet.

Scotia Mine Explosion 1976 Part 2 of 5 Letcher County notes the tragic mine explosions that occurred at Scotia Mine in 1976. The accidents are noted as being one of the worst mine disasters in U.S. history. When industrial coal mining came to the mountains of southeastern Kentucky in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, it brought both positives and negatives. On the one hand, mining operations brought a steady paycheck to those who had largely lived by the alternating fortunes of farming. Conversely, the mines brought a sense of employment dependence and often unsafe working conditions. By the mid-1900s, mining safety had improved drastically from just a few years before. Battery powered lamps had replaced carbide lanterns and continuous automated mining equipment had taken over for the pick and shovel and draft animals. But, due to the nature of the work, accidents still injured miners. The Scotia Mine began operations in 1962 and was a subsidiary of the Blue Diamond Coal Company. It was located in the Ovenfork Community of Letcher County, about fourteen miles northeast of the town of Cumberland (Harlan County, Kentucky). On March 9, 1976, at approximately 11:45 a.m., an explosion caused by coal dust and gasses rocked the Scotia mine. Two days later, a second explosion happened. The first explosion killed fifteen miners; the second killed eleven. Investigators believed that the explosions were caused by methane gasses that were ignited by a spark caused by a battery-powered locomotive or another electric device. A lack of ventilation figured prominently in the accidents. The explosions at Scotia led to the passage of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977. This law strengthened the previously passed 1969 act, which, at the time, had been the most significant legislation on mine safety ever adopted in the U.S. The 1977 law also moved the Mine Safety and Health Administration from the Department of the Interior to the Department of Labor.

This short clip is from Davitt McAteer's 1985 25-minutes video - Monongah 1907. The entire video, rich with detail about this disaster also traces the development of mine safety laws in the US. Monongah 1907 is now available on DVD for $14.95. For ordering information, send an email to: [email protected] . And don't miss Davitt McAteer's book, Monongah: The Tragic Story of the 1907 Monongah Mine Disaster, the Worst Industrial Accident in U.S. History, recently published by the West Virginia University Press (2007) http://www.wvupress.com. "When I heard that Davitt McAteer was working on a book detailing the unparalleled disaster at the Monongah mines, I though it promising news ... no one is positioned better than Davitt MsAteer to examine the Monongah mining disaster of 1907 from all the perspectives required: historical, sociological, legal, and economic. Monongah is an important book, long overdue." From the Introduction by Robert B. Reich, former Secretary of the US Department of Labor, 1993 to 1997. Davitt McAteer, ESQ., a native of West Virginia, has devoted much of his professional efforts to mine health and safety issues. During the 1970s, Davitt led the safety and health programs of the United Mine Workers and founded the Occupational Safety and Health Law Center. During the Clinton Administration, he served as the Assistant Secretary for Mine Safety and Health at the United States Department of Labor. In January of 2006, West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin asked Mr. McAteer to serve as personal advisor and conduct an independent investigation into the cause or causes of the Sago Mine Disaster and the Aracoma Alma No. 1 Mine Fire, both of which occurred in January 2006.
