    • Description:
      "A belt-wearable self-contained self-rescuer (SCSR) manufactured by the CSE Corp. and designated the SR-100 was evaluated for safety in the underground mine environment by the U.S. Bureau of Mines. The evaluation consisted of laboratory tests on the chemicals contained in the unit and field trials to simulate the mine environment. This report summarizes the test results and compares the results with those from earlier tests with chemical and compressed oxygen self-rescuers. It was concluded that the new SCSR did not pose any different or more severe hazards than the earlier units. In view of the mine-proven safety record of the SCSR's now in service, no reason could be found to disallow use of the belt-wearable unit." - NIOSHTIC-2 NIOSHTIC no. 10008483
