Description: Improvements in roof control technology have led to a significant reduction in roof and rib fall fatalities. Despite these gains, roof and rib falls continue to be a leading cause of accidents and injuries in underground mines. MSHA' s Preventive Roof/Rib Outreach Program (PROP) intends to increase awareness of the hazards that can lead to roof and rib fall accidents and injuries and the precautions necessary to prevent them.

The Workshop is intended for engineers and other mining professionals involved in the preparation of roof and ground control plans. Attendees should bring their laptops to the Workshop with Analysis of Mine Roof Support (AMRS) and Analysis of Coal Pillar Stability (ACPS) software already installed.
