The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method would provide at least the same measure of protection as the existing standard. 3. AMFIRE Mining Company, LLC [Docket No. M–2005–075–C] AMFIRE Mining Company, LLC, P.O. Box 157, Clymer, Pennsylvania 15728 has filed a petition to modify the application of 30 CFR 75.1710–1 (Canopies or cabs; self-propelled dieselpowered and electric face equipment; installation requirements) to its Nolo Mine (MSHA I.D. No. 36–08850) located in Indiana County, Pennsylvania. The petitioner proposes to operate selfpropelled electric face equipment without cabs and canopies in coal seams of 48″ or less. The petitioner asserts that using cabs and canopies on the equipment in areas of 48′ or less results in a diminution of safety causing the roof support to be dislodged. In addition, the operator’s visibility is decreased which poses a hazardous situation to persons traveling on foot. The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method would provide at least the same measure of protection as the existing standard.
