Potential hazards when underground equipment catches fire include:

  • falls during hurried dismounting
  • failing to hit the emergency stop and point the machine to the wall
  • fleeing the fire without thinking about the safest destination
  • stumbling on obstacles on and near the roadway while evacuating the fire area
  • remaining too close to the fire

These and other points are described in this checklist type document which can provide guidance for sites preparing risk analyses.
