The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded by the existing standard. Docket Number: M–2010–001–M. Petitioner: Morton International, Inc., Highway 83 South, New Iberia, Louisiana 70560. Mine: Weeks Island Mine, MSHA I.D. No. 16–00970, located in Iberia County, Louisiana. Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 57.22304 (Approved equipment (II–A mines) . Modification Request: The petitioner proposes to use Model J251–D/E Face Drill, manufactured by J.H. Fletcher & Company. The petitioner states that: (1) The J251–D/E Face Drill consists of an electric drill combined with a dieselpowered tram system. The electric and diesel power systems are electrically interlocked within the permissible enclosure. The electric drill meets the requirements of 30 CFR part 18. The electrical interlock between the electric and diesel components prevents the operation of the electrical system when the diesel is running, and prevents the diesel system from operating when the electrical system is running. The diesel engine for the tram is not an MSHAapproved permissible engine. The J251– D/E Face Drill has a methane monitoring system which will be connected to both the electric drill and the diesel tram circuits of the machine and shuts down both functions at a set level of methane; (2) drilling equipment without a diesel tram system requires a multi-step process to transport the permissible drill equipment between remote face locations. These steps include: (a) hitching the permissible equipment to a diesel vehicle; (b) disabling the permissible equipment’s tram system and brakes; (c) towing the permissible equipment to the new face location; (d) re-enabling the tram system and brakes; (e) disconnecting the tow vehicle; and (f) repositioning the tow vehicle away from the cutting and drilling equipment; (3) although procedures and training utilized by miners allow these manual steps to be accomplished safely, a machine with its own diesel tram system provides an engineered method to reduce hazards for miners associated with towing vehicles and towed equipment. Those hazards include some of the likely causes of fatalities and serious injuries in mines (e.g. getting caught between the equipment and/or rib); (4) prohibiting the use of the drill will require miners at the Weeks Island Mine to continue to rely on a manual multistep process, with greater potential for human error to move drilling equipment VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:56 May 12, 2010 Jkt 220001 across long distances rather than benefiting from an engineered safety solution. The petitioner asserts that application of the existing standard will result in a diminution of safety to the miners and that the proposed alternative method will at all times assure no less than the same measure of protection afforded by the standard and actually will provide improved safety.
