created equipment blind-area diagrams. These diagrams give us great insight on the operator's field of view. Here is an example of the field of view around a tri-axle dump truck: The grey area in the diagram depicts the area around the truck that cannot be seen from the operator's position. It shows the size of blind areas relative to the

Miners died while their bosses refused safety equipment

Jun 26, 2019 The mining industry has known for decades about these blind spots and the role they played in dozens of deaths. All the while, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has pushed companies to install readily available and relatively cheap safety features that, it says, could save lives.
