Keep Your Mind On Your Work

Operators of remote controlled continuous mining machines have many things to do and think about.

Safety is one of many concerns for a continuous mining machine operator.

Never reposition the mining machine or tram it for a place change if you are positioned in the machine's turning radius.

De-energize the machine and remote control unit according to established safe work practices before entering the "red zone".
