GENERAL INFORMATION OF THE MINE

The Ballarpur Colliery 3&4 pits is a working underground mine of Ballarpur area of M/S Western Coal Fields limited, situated in Ballarpur and about 200 km south of Nagpur. The mine is producing around 0.23 Million Tonnes per annum. The mine consists of one seam called Ballarpur seam. The thickness of coal seam varies from 16 to 20 m. The seam has split geologically into three distinct sections in major part of the mine area mainly Section-I, Section -II and Section-III. Section-I is around 1.5 to 2.5 m thick. Section-II varies in thickness from 5 to 7m and is separated from Section-I by a parting of around 2 to 3m. Section-II is being worked in the mine in two distinct horizons namely Top Section and Middle Section. Middle Section is around 2.44m thick and has been developed 0.5 to 1m below the roof of Section-II. Section-III varies in thickness from 2.5 to 4.5m. The parting between Section-II and Section-III is around 1.5 to 2m. The mine works one horizon referred to as bottom Section along the true floor in Section-III. The general thickness of Bottom Section is 2.5 to 3m. The mine is connected to surface with two shafts each fully lined with cement concrete and having finished diameter of 5.49m each and also one incline of length 908m connected to the workings at 61L/18D which also serves as intake. No.3 shaft which acts as downcast shaft is 170.26m deep and No.4 shaft which acts as upcast shaft is 168.65m deep. The mine is ventilated by axial flow fan installed at surface. The fan is connected to upcast shaft by fan drift. 1. LOCATION OF THE MINE : A) Situated in Chandrapur District. B) Within latitudes 19 deg. 49 min North and longitudes 79 deg. 23 min East.

While drillers were drilling hole in the face. one piece of coal from side fell and hit his left leg cause injury. What action can be taken to eliminate or alleviate those causes and therefore reduce the problem and ultimately the accidents? . he slipped from the side stitching rope. While he was transmitting signals for hauling loaded tubs from face starting inbye side of the curve. What are the problems? c. What is causing problem at the mine? b. While he was sitting a side of haulage track. ”what option are available to prevent injuries”?. The technique being analyses in this is based on the perspective which calls for a way of thinking generated by awareness that accidents are not ”the problem” but instead are symptoms of a “Mines Problems” within this analysis lie question and ultimately the answer to greater question. a set of empty tubs derailed and hit him which caused injury to right leg. the level pulley guiding the rope detached from the place. After taking measurement of loaded sand truck. due to which he fell down on the pipe causing injury to his left side ribs. he was sitting on the platform provided for preparing gate pass. he slipped down on floor and got injury to left leg. During movement of the truck. the rope hit him which caused injury to his left leg. the platform got hit by the rear portion of the truck and he fell down and got injury to his head.2005 2 i. 2006 1 2007 2008 2009 1 NIL 1 While he was climbing the platform made for supporting the fall.
