Do you like breathing? Of course! We all do! But the hazards of the modern mine can get the best of us. This short pamphlet will walk you through the various situations you may find yourself in during your time in the mine.
DEALING WITH FIRE
Found yourself in a smoky space with no breathing apparatus? Don't despair! Grab the nearest rag of cloth, dunk it in some water, and cover your mouth! Then stay low as you make your way to safety!
DEALING WITH WATER
Just like loopy Uncle Larry at the family barbeque, whenever water makes an appearance inside a mine, things can get out of control fast.
If you find water is improperly draining during extraction or water seems to be coming from places it shouldn't, it is your responsibility to report it to your supervisor immediately!
DEALING WITH GAS
A mysterious gas from inside the mine!
A mysterious gas from............ oh no! You're dead!
Mine gasses are no joke! If you or your monoxide detector smell something fishy while working underground, get out immediately! Immediate evacuation of the space should be your only response.
