Code of practice comprising occupational safety guidelines for preventing underground explosions in coal mining - covers ventilation, gas detection, fire control, dust control, Ventilation plans for underground mines.

The manager of an underground mine must ensure that a plan of the ventilation system at the mine is kept at the mine that shows the direction, course and volume of air currents, and the position of all air doors, stoppings, fans, regulators and ventilating devices, in the   prevention and management of fires in underground mines in Western Australia.
