ABSTRACT
Using the blasting machines in underground mines involves complying with the European Essential Safety Requirements. Verification of the electric safety parameters of the blasting machines has a particular importance taking into consideration the existing explosion risk which should be minimized for the purpose of ensuring human life safety and health. This paper has as objectives describing the electric safety parameters, as well as operation in conditions of safety and reliability of the blasting machines used in underground mines

Keywords: explosive atmosphere, explosion protection, blasting machines
