Part 36 Mining

Section 691 Record of workers

The employer is responsible for ensuring that every worker records when they enter and leave the mine as well as when they plan to stay beyond a regular shift change. In many mines, each worker hangs an identification tag on a board showing the location in the mine where they will be working. Upon leaving the mine, workers place their tags on the logout board.
