Part 36 Mining

Section 698 Location

Since rapid communication can minimize the potential for a major safety incident, this section specifies where some of the interconnected voice communication stations must be located. In general, the locations are where working activities are routinely undertaken and where workers would expect to be found.

The Director is authorized to order the installation of interconnected voice communications stations at any other location that the Director considers appropriate.
