§22A-2A-102. Control of diesel safety and health hazards.
The purpose of this article is to reduce or eliminate the
inherent hazards of electric-powered equipment in underground coal
mines while recognizing that the introduction of an internal
combustion engine into that environment presents a different set of
safety and health risks for miners. The provisions of this article
are intended to provide an integrated approach to the control of
diesel safety and health hazards in underground coal mines.
