(6) The operators at underground bituminous coal mines, with the assistance of certified miners and mine officials have the primary responsibility to prevent the existence of unsafe and unhealthful conditions at underground bituminous coal mines. This configuration could defeat ground-fault protection and result in hazardous voltage on equipment frames.

A single window-type current transformer must be used to provide the ground-fault protection required by paragraph (a)(4)(i) for circuits extending from.

Whenever a ground fault detector indicates a ground fault, field technicians must assume that conductors or equipment are damaged and need repair.
