Abstract Following an incident in 1997 at a mine having two winding systems on one shaft, a number of safety issues were raised that had not been addressed. In view of advances in technology and the wide diversity of winding, signalling and shaft operating systems, there was a need to update recommendations for the safe operation of winding systems. This document is aimed at persons responsible for the safe design, use and management of winding systems in deep mine shafts. Recommendations are made with respect to the equipment used on winding engines, and the application and use of the winding system, including the training of personnel.
