Description

This course is the second in a comprehensive series of five mine ventilation courses by the author, written for practicing professionals. The complete series includes the following titles ...

  • Mine Ventilation 1 - Introduction

  • Mine Ventilation 2 - Hazard Awareness

  • Mine Ventilation 3 - Design Basics

  • Mine Ventilation 4 - Advanced Design

  • Mine Ventilation 5 - Operations

The basic focus for this course series is on airflow engineering. This is because getting the right amount of fresh air to the workplace is the single most important success factor in meeting the quality and quantity requirements of an efficient, safe and healthy underground mining operation.

The courses are also designed to ensure the ventilation practitioner has an adequate understanding of at least the basic issues involved in mine ventilation, and therefore knows when a ventilation problem is of such magnitude as to need to call in a specialist, and has sufficient background to be able to liaise technically with that specialist.

Mine Ventilation 2 - Hazard Awareness ensures that you, as ventilation officer, are aware of toxic substances in the underground environment, are familiar with the toxic and other effects of each as well as the available methods of testing and monitoring. This course also ensures that you understand the principles of mine fires and explosions as well as your duties, and the response of other officials and the workers, in the event of a fire or other emergency. Major topics covered include...

  • Gases, Dust, Radiation and Biological Hazards

  • Gas, Dust and Fume Surveys and Monitoring

  • Mine Fires, Explosions and Emergencies

  • Escape, Entrapment and Refuge
