- Equip grates and feeders with mechanical clearing devices to prevent miners from being exposed to hazards of falling or sliding material.
- Make sure miners do not travel by foot on stockpiles or near the toe of stockpile slopes.
- Make sure miners can be seen, heard, or can communicate with others when working alone under hazardous conditions.
- Examine working places to identify the potential for falling or sliding materials prior to allowing access to areas in or around grates and feeders.
