SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: Section
101(c) of the Federal Mine Safety and
Health Act of 1977 and Title 30 of the
Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part
44 govern the application, processing,
and disposition of petitions for
modification.
I. Background
Section 101(c) of the Federal Mine
Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine
Act) allows the mine operator or
representative of miners to file a
petition to modify the application of any
mandatory safety standard to a coal or
other mine if the Secretary of Labor
determines that:
1. An alternative method of achieving
the result of such standard exists which
will at all times guarantee no less than
the same measure of protection afforded
the miners of such mine by such
standard; or
2. The application of such standard to
such mine will result in a diminution of
safety to the miners in such mine.
In addition, sections 44.10 and 44.11
of 30 CFR establish the requirements for
filing petitions for modification.
II. Petition for Modification
Docket Number: M–2021–004–M.
Petitioner: Genesis Alkali, LLC, 580
Westvaco Rd., Green River, Wyoming
(Zip 82935).
Mine: Genesis Alkali @WESTVACO,
MSHA ID No. 48–00152, located in
Sweetwater County, Wyoming.
Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 57.22305
(Approved equipment (III mines)).
Modification Request: The petitioner
requests a modification of the existing
30 CFR 57.22305 standard to permit an
alternative, non-MSHA approved
Powered Air Purifying Respirator
(PAPR). The petitioner seeks approval
for the use of the CleanSpace EX PAPR
(CleanSpace EX) in its Class III
underground, trona mine in areas in or
beyond the last open crosscut and in
areas where methane may enter the air
current.
The petitioner states that:
(a) Genesis Alkali @WESTVACO is an
underground trona mine. The petitioner
has provided miners who wished to
wear a PAPR voluntarily with one as a
means to provide a fresh air flow over
their face in a warm environment and to
reduce exposure to nuisance dust. Some
of the miners who choose to wear a
PAPR work inby the last open cross cut.
The petitioner historically purchased
3M Airstream Headgear-Mounted
PAPRs. 3M discontinued these in 2020.
(b) Other intrinsically safe (IS)
respirators available commercially have
been approved by other certification
bodies, e.g., European Union and the
International Electrotechnical
Commission (IEC). However, these other
IS PAPRs have not been approved by
MSHA pursuant to 30 CFR parts 18
through 36.
(c) The CleanSpace EX manufactured
by CleanSpace was determined to be IS

Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 136 / Tuesday, July 20, 2021 / Notices
under other certification bodies.
CleanSpace is not pursuing MSHA
approval.
(d) The CleanSpace EX’s design
allows the miners to wear their standard
head protection, including cap lamps.
(e) The CleanSpace EX has been
tested and approved as IS under many
internationally recognized testing
standards. The CleanSpace EX was
designed to and is approved pursuant to
ATEX ‘‘Equipment or Protective System
Intended for use in Potentially
Explosive Atmospheres Directive 2014/
34/EU’’ and is approved to be marked ‘‘I
Ml Ex ia I Ma, II 2 G Ex ib IIB T4 Gb,
¥20°C <Ta<40°C.’’ Additionally, the
CleanSpace EX was designed and is
approved as IS pursuant to the IEC
Certification Scheme for Explosive
Atmospheres (IECEX) and is approved
to be marked ‘‘Ex ia I Ma, Ex ib IIB T4
Gb, IECEx TSA 13.0024X.’’
(f) The scientific literature includes
peer-reviewed papers, which suggest
that there is an equivalent level of safety
for miners when IS equipment is
approved by either the ACRI2001
standard or relevant international
standards.
(g) The CleanSpace EX was tested to
standards that are equivalent to the
MSHA ACRI2001 criteria. The
CleanSpace EX has been subjected to
extensive testing requirements under
several North American and
International Standards which all
available scientific literature and studies
have concluded are as effective as
testing and approval under MSHA’s
ACRI2001 criteria.
(h) All available information supports
a determination that use of the
CleanSpace EX in the Genesis Alkali @
WESTVACO mine will achieve the same
result as the standard.
The petitioner proposes the following
alternative method:
(a) The petitioner requests the use of
the CleanSpace EX, which is not MSHA
approved, in this mine in areas in or
beyond the last open crosscut and in
areas where methane may enter the air
current.
(b) Affected mine employees will be
trained in the proper use and care of the
CleanSpace EX in accordance with the
manufacturer’s recommendations. Task
Training and annual refresher training
will be documented using MSHA form
5000–23.
The petitioner asserts that the
alternate method proposed will at all
times guarantee no less than the same
measure of protection afforded the
miners under the mandatory standard.
