Field tests of second generation proximity detection systems on continuous miners

Mining Engineering, 2015, Vol. 67, No. 3, pp. 20-20
Carr, Jacob L.; Jobes, Christopher C.; Lutz, Timothy J.; Yonkey, Jeffrey A.


PREVIEW:

Since 1984, there have been 39 fatalities involving striking and pinning of the operator and other workers by the continuous mining machine (CMM). In January 2015, the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) finalized a regulation to require proximity detection systems on all continuous mining machines except full-face machines (MSHA, 2015). Proximity detection systems are designed to stop machine motion to protect miners from striking/pinning hazards. Several MSHA-approved proximity detection systems are commercially available.
