Part 36 Mining

Section 661 Mine shaft conveyance

The mine shaft is a major means of entry and exit. As well, the shaft cage is the main device used for transporting workers from the surface to underground and vice versa. Explosive products may not be transported on a shaft conveyance unless related safe work procedures have been developed, workers trained and the procedures implemented. Section 8 of the OHS Regulation requires that the procedures be in writing and available to workers.
