Cable Handling, Remote Control Continuous Miners
|Mine Type: Underground Coal and Non-Metal|
|Category: Section Face Equipment|
When handling the cable within the turning radius of the remote control continuous miner, de-energize the machine and remote control unit according to established safe work practices.
Many fatal and near miss accidents have occurred because the cap lamp cord, a tool, or a body part accidentally pushed a tram lever.
Ensure that you and your co-workers always work safely.
DO NOT RISK entering the remote control continuous miner's turning radius to handle the cable unless the machine and remote control unit are de-energized according to established safe work practices.
