This is a training course for all mine personnel involved in underground mining. Falls of roof have always been a hazard in underground mines. Many miners have lost their lives to roof falls, but these types of accidents are becoming less common as ground control practices have improved. A combination of research, stronger regulations, and best practices by companies have made it less likely that today's miners will be injured or killed by falling rock. Miners must recognize the hazards, however, as well as the need to install ground supports correctly, and protect themselves and their co-workers from ground fall accidents.
