The manual serves to describe the AfroxPac Escape Type Breathing Apparatus and the proper use of the unit. Key components, their functions and correct donning procedures are explained and demonstrated. Daily care and inspection procedures are also discussed.
Legislation, as promulgated by the Chief Inspector of Mines, rules that all persons who may be dependent for survival on self-contained self-rescuers (ResQpacs) must be thoroughly trained in the operation and use of the unit. All training aids referred to in this manual are designed to meet the requirements of the Department of Minerals and Energy.
The AfroxPac has been developed to be carried on a belt around the waist. However, in some work categories it may not be possible to carry the unit on the belt. In such cases it may be carried on the chest by means of a specially designed chest harness. It can also be stored in specially designed protective boxes, manufactured from stainless steel and fixed to vehicles in such a place that is it easily accessible to the user.
It is imperative for all persons proceeding underground to carry an AfroxPac as a means of securing their own safety in time of need. Special attention should therefore be taken to the contents of the manual.
Note: ResQpac is the generic name given to all body-worn escape type self-contained self-rescuers (SCSRs). The name self-contained self-rescuer is synonymous with ResQpac as used in the manual.
