Guidance and information on escape from mines

Date of publication:

This illustrated booklet is aimed mainly at mine owners and managers. It includes guidance to help them determine escape arrangements for their mine and to draw up an emergency plan, bearing in mind that there is no escape definitive procedure to follow, and that there can be a huge difference between mines. The booklet covers legislation relevant to escape; the different types of self-rescuers (and details of wearer trials) and safe havens and changeover facilities. Appendix 2 looks at escape practice in mines abroad.
