Section 715 Stoppings

An employer must ensure that

(a) ventilation stoppings between intake and return airways prevent air leaks, and

(b) the space between the faces of ventilation stoppings and roadways is kept free of obstructions, and

(c) ventilation stoppings are constructed at crosscuts on each side of the conveyor system up to the last crosscut before the tail end of the last conveyor in order to minimize the potential contamination of those airways.
