Best Practices
• Establish and discuss safe work procedures before beginning work. Identify and control all hazards associated with the work to be performed and ensure a means of safe access is available when working on equipment.
• Ensure proper fall protection is used when miners are exposed to a fall hazard.
• Train miners in the use and care of fall protection equipment. Provide ladders, mechanical lifts, and/or other safe access means when a safe access is not available. Ensure secure footing in all work areas
