Performance requirements for locomotive braking systems
Accidents involving rail bound equipment account for the greatest number of underground accidents away from the face.  Although brake related accidents were in the minority, it is obvious that any equipment weighing over 60 tonnes
Magnetic rope testing instrument performance
Many miners have died and major financial losses have been incurred over the centuries as a consequence of the catastrophic failure of mine hoisting ropes. Rope condition assessment, in the form of visual inspections, has been practised
