This publication contains the papers presented at four technology transfer seminars on mine safety education and training. The papers highlight the Bureau of Mines' recent research aimed at improving the effectiveness of mine safety training in order to reduce workplace accidents. The following eight papers are included: "Effect of Training Strategy on Self-Contained Self-Rescuer Donning Performance" (Vaught, Brnich, and Kellner); "The Work Crew Performance Model: Linking Training, Assessment, and Performance" (Wiehagen et al.); "Roof and Rib Hazard Recognition Training Using 3-D Slides" (Barrett, Wiehagen, and Vaught); "Human Factors Contributing to Groundfall Accidents in Underground Coal Mines: Workers' Views" (Peters, Wiehagen); "Blasters Training Manual for Metal-Nonmetal Miners" (Peltier, Fletcher, and Dick); "Operations-Based Training Strategy for Longwall Mining" (Grayson et al.); "Miner and Trainer Responses to Simulated Mine Emergency Problems" (Cole et al.); and "First Aid Role Play Simulations for Miners" (Cole et al.). Each paper includes an abstract and references. Some papers contain exercises and simulations. (KC)
