What are the governing regulations?
MSHA is responsible for ensuring that miners are aware of the protocol and procedures concerning the operation of underground mine haulage.

The material covered in this safety training is derived from 30 CFR Part 57 and 30 CFR Part 75.

Case Study: On February 19, 2013, a 44-year-old shuttle car operator with four years of experience was killed when he was pinned underneath the battery end of a section scoop. The victim was shoveling along the ribs of the crosscut when a battery-powered scoop backed into the crosscut, striking and fatally injuring him.

Key Takeaways: Effective communication is essential when moving or working around powered haulage underground. Never assume that the equipment operator can see you.
