The mine decided to incorporate a detailed consideration of ergonomics in their equipment specification for a new bolter miner. Specifications were provided on: • • • • • • • • Floor height; Monorail storage and handling; Mesh handling; Cassette storage and handling; Roof bolting operations; Rib bolting operations access/egress; Guarding; Visibility and viewing angles.
