Dozer Engulfment Case Study Agenda Surge Pile Hazards Surge Pile Accidents Solutions for Stronger Cab Windows Demonstration Conclusion Panel Discussion

Slide 3

Dozer Engulfment Case Study Purpose Share one strategy the coal business has actualized to spare lives

Slide 4

Surge Pile Hazards

Slide 5

Surge Pile Safety Slides with the MSHA logo were adjusted from the MSHA site and can be found at: Directorate of Technical Support Mine Safety and Health Administration

Slide 6

Surge Pile Hazards Feeding material acts like "sand trap"

Slide 7

Surge Pile Hazards The edge of the drawhole is insecure

Slide 8

Surge Pile Hazards Poor perceivability

Slide 9

Surge Pile Hazards Since 1980, 19 people have passed on in coal mining related surge heap mishaps Most of the mischances have included a concealed hole made when material "connected" over a feeder

Slide 10

Causes of "Crossing over" Over a Surge Pile Feeder Bridging can happen When gear transverses the material at the surface of the heap Surface material compacts making a false roadway "Settling in" may happen in a sit without moving heap and increment chance

Slide 11

Surge Pile Accidents

Slide 12

Dozer Buried in Cavity Note the thickness of the material that had been spanned over

Slide 13

Partially Buried Bulldozer in Fatal Accident in Pennsylvania A shrouded hole given way under the dozer while it was pushing coal on the heap

Slide 14

Most deadly mischances happened when the dozer taxicab windows either broke, or were pushed into the taxi, permitting coal to fill the taxi

Slide 15

Cab Filled with Coal The coal has softened or pushed up the taxicab windows and filled the taxi

Slide 16

Windshield pushed once again into taxi Note: orange protest under windshield is an independent self rescuer (SCSR)

Slide 17

Best Practices: Ways to Improve Surge Pile Safety

Slide 18

Best Practices: Surge Pile Safety Provide hardware taxis sufficiently solid to oppose entombment weights

Slide 19

Solutions for Stronger Cab Windows

Slide 20

Available Solutions for Stronger Cab Windows MSHA activity Use of high-quality glass Massey approach Add backings to within the taxi windows - joined with utilizing to some degree more grounded glass Use of polycarbonate windows Adequate quality Support around edges needs to consider higher diversion Issue of scratch-resistance Bodygard framework A tweaked polycarbonate framework

Slide 21

Massey Subkit

Slide 22

Massey Subkit The main framework Most generally utilized Effective as a part of sparing lives System configuration is involved metal bars appended to within the taxicab keep the taxi and glass from crumpling on the administrator

Slide 23

The Massey Approach Installed bolster bars within the taxicab windows The backings for the right-side entryway window are appeared here

Slide 24

The Massey Approach Horizontal bolster bars and extra edge bolster for the windshield are appeared here

Slide 25

The Massey Approach Massey\'s fruitful internment exhibition The glass split yet it held the coal out of the taxi

Slide 26

Contrast this scene after the Massey showing - where coal was held out of the taxi - with...

Slide 27

This scene from a mishap, where coal has filled the taxicab...

Slide 28

Advantages Keeps taxis from giving way Least costly Saves lives Disadvantages Obscures vision particularly when moving down Causes cycildelic influences that outcome in protestations of cerebral pain from administrators Metal bars shake and increment clamor level in the lodge Metal bars release and break entryway glass that must be supplanted Massey Subkit

Slide 29

PPG Preformed Pre-planned Product

Slide 30

PPG Preformed Pre-outlined Product Created as according to popular demand of MSHA to conquer the lacks of the subkit System plan An artificially solidified preformed pre-composed item Installed by sticking the glass into a gasket is introduced in same house as standard glass bundles

Slide 31

High-quality glass introduced utilizing urethane glue

Slide 32

Field Burial Demonstration Federal No. 2 Mine Near Morgantown, WV

Slide 33

High-quality glass introduced in all taxicab windows of test dozer

Slide 34

Dozer with high-quality glass being covered in coal heap

Slide 35

Buried dozer being uncovered

Slide 36

Checking windows after entombment

Slide 37

High-quality glass in place after internment exhibition

Slide 38

Advantages Does not hinder vision Resists static weight up to 40 psi Disadvantages Preformed consequently application is constrained to Caterpillar and Komatsu dozer\'s* standard taxicab bundles Requires settling of any disfigurement of the taxicab earlier establishment of the glass Most costly May break when affected May fly out under anxiety PPG Preformed Pre-planned Product PPG Pounds per square inch *Molds are just for dozers not for end loaders

Slide 39

Bodygard System

Slide 40

Bodygard System Custom built Custom introduced Polycarbonate framework Outboard seat is made Material is mechanically join to the taxicab Inhibits interior crumple Unbreakable Noise encasing in the vicinity establishment All makers MSHA endorsed

Slide 41

Case Study History Massey led drop trial of 3 frameworks to decide the best framework The accompanying exhibit demonstrates the aftereffects of the test

Slide 42

Dozer Drop Test Demonstration

Slide 43

Advantages Unbreakable Does not discourage vision Can be made to fit anything (all makes and models of existing hardware) Absorbs and protects sound Broad construct framework Onsite tweaked establishment in light of all taxis Installed nearby by boring and connecting to taxi Cut to specs and appended to guarantee soundness Disadvantage* Is less scratch safe that customary glass in this manner a defensive covering is connected that is simple and cheap to supplant Bodygard System Body Guard *Protective replicable material is connected to enhance the scratch resistance

Slide 44

Conclusion Based on the consequences of the drop test, Massey marked a national contract with Bodygard to play out their establishments
