Assessment of Noise Controls Commonly Used on Jumbo Drills and Bolters in Western United States Underground Metal Mines1/1/2005 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe noise-control treatments most commonly observed on drills and bolters during this study were evaluated on machines at underground metal mines to determine the amount of noise reduction achieved by each control.
1/1/2005 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper reports on a cooperative study on vibrating screen noise conducted at a coal preparation plant. Rubber isolators were found to reduce sound levels by 1 dB and amped side plates reduced vibration levels on the screen sides by 1 to 7 dB(A).
Two field surveys were recently conducted to quantify fugitive dust generation and dispersion from truck traffic on unpaved and untreated mine haulage roads.
Use of a Directional Spray System Design to Control Respirable Dust and Face Gas Concentrations Around a Continuous Mining MachineA laboratory study assessed the impacts of water spray pressure, face ventilation quantity, and line brattice setback distance on respirable dust and SF6 tracer gas concentrations around a continuous mining machine using a sprayfan or directional spray ...
Describes inconsistencies in disease and illness reporting in U.S. mining, identifies under-reporting of disease and illness in U.S. mining, and summarizes selected disease and illness in U.S. mining from 1983 through 2001.
10/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA monitoring method for diesel particulate matter was published as Method 5040 by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
9/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesReports on the evaluation of water mist for the suppression of underground mine fires, such as fires in diesel fuel storage areas.
9/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesNational Institute for Occupational Safety and Health method 7703 is a portable field procedure for the analysis of workplace air filter samples for hexavalent chromium (CrVI) content immediately after the samples are collected. The field method prescri...
8/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe work-principle from thermodynamics was used to formulate a model for predicting toxic fumes from mining explosives in underground tests, where rapid turbulent combustion in the surrounding air noticeably changes the resulting concentrations.
Whole-Body Vibration and Postural Stress among Operators of Construction Equipment: A Literature Review7/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis review evaluates selected papers that have studied exposure to whole-body vibration and awkward posture among operators of mobile equipment.
