Edit: I would guess that a hot conveyor roller bearing would be one of the most dangerous issues down there...
A shift boss once sees me wiring up explosion proof lighting in a powder mag ( Why they ask for this no idea everyone has a light in their head... )
Great he says can you put some at the feeder where we blast ( hung up shoot, miners try and solve every problem with explosives )
I had to explain explosion proof is not the same as blow up proof. ( am not a big fan of things blowing up I try and stay as far away from the miners as I can )

“Not blow up proof” that’s classic.

Maybe they should build explosion proof stuff out of whatever that thing in the pic is made of? Survived a nuke, earthquake and tsunami!

No coffee is the best way I know of to justify docking it.
No feen, no work.
