Overview

This instructor´s guide is designed for use by instructors who train mine employees on how and when to use a mine refuge chamber, and aids the instructor in reinforcing the critical decisions that have to be made during a mining emergency. The discussion notes and teaching points included in this instructor´s guide are based on a paper-and-pencil simulation exercise that trainees use to learn about the choices that must be made in an emergency situation. In this exercise, trainees work through an interactive story that presents a scenario in which a section crew, along with additional general labor workers, must decide what to do when they learn there is a fire somewhere in the mine, but do not know the exact location. One of the characters in this story is Man Mountain, a member of the labor crew. As time goes by, the miners face a series of choices about how best to increase their chances for survival. The story is taken in part from real-life incidents. The teaching instructions in this instructor´s guide have been designed for use with the simulation exercise, which is included in the Trainee´s Problem Book.The completion of this exercise can help new miners, experienced miners, trainers, and others, who must deal with issues of self-rescue and escape, to become more aware of: (1) the need to gather as much information as possible as early as possible; (2) the value of knowing one´s escapeways; (3) the need to use self-contained self-rescuers (SCSRs) properly; (4) the value of a multigas detector in an emergency; (5) when, and under what circumstances, to enter a refuge chamber; and (6) how to recognize the reaction signs of traumatic incident stress.
