8/15/2012 - Information CircularsThis IC details a NIOSH investigation on the CDEM’s ability to accurately predict the explosibility of coal and rock dust mixtures. The conclusions support the field use of the CDEM to measure the explosibility of coal and rock dust mixtures.
This document presents the results of research conducted by NIOSH in cooperation with participating underground stone mines to develop generally applicable guidelines for designing stable pillars and roof spans in stone mines.
Emergency escape and refuge alternatives was created by a multidisciplinary team at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to teach miners about emergency escape and using refuge alternatives. The training is a Microsoft Power...
How to Operate a Refuge Chamber: A Quick Start Guide was created by researchers at NIOSH to be used as a template for mine instructors to modify based on the refuge chambers used at their mine.
This handbook was developed to identify available engineering controls that can assist underground and surface metal/nonmetal mining operations in reducing worker exposure to respirable silica dust.
This handbook was developed to identify available engineering controls that can help the industry reduce worker exposure to respirable coal and silica dust.
12/1/2009 - Information CircularsThis document describes principles of noise control to operators, safety personnel, and mechanics in the mining industry so that they can evaluate the extent of a noise problem, determine the best approach, and apply the most appropriate solution.
Refuge Chamber Expectations Training was created by a multidisciplinary team at NIOSH to inform miners of what to expect psychologically and physically if it became necessary to use a refuge chamber in a mine emergency.
8/1/2009 - Information CircularsThis report presents nearly all structural data available from explosion tests of 20-psi mine ventilation seals and concrete-block ventilation stoppings that were conducted by the NIOSH during 1997-2008.
NIOSH has created this document with suggestions for developing manuals and educational materials concerning refuge chambers for miners.
