The petitioners state that: (i) An SCSR has never been used in an anthracite mine and no statistical data exists to support the need to use an SCSR; E:\FR\FM\05OCN1.SGM 05OCN1 58878 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 193 / Thursday, October 5, 2006 / Notices (ii) The potential hazard which would require wearing an SCSR and traveling the escapeway does not exist; (iii) There is no hazard scenario where traveling the escapeway with an SCSR would be likely; and (iv) The travel time on foot from the working face through the primary escapeway is less than fifteen minutes. The petitioners further state that, historically, fires in anthracite mines have not been a significant hazard, as a result of the low volatile matter of the coal, which is reflected in numerous granted petitions for modification relating to firefighting. The petitioners propose to have each miner wear an SCSR correctly for one hour to give the full affect of proper usage when actually wearing the SCSR, because the petitioners believe that to train the miner with one SCSR is a safer act than to have multiple SCSRs without proper training and the miner will know how to use the SCSR in the event of an actual emergency. The petitioners also propose to have hand-held multi-gas detectors located at each working face and have the SCSR stored on the locomotive for the locomotive operator. The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method for use of the SCSR would in no way provide less than the same measure of protection than that afforded the miners under the existing standard.
