Expectations vs. Experience: Training Lessons Based Upon Miners' Difficulties when Using Emergency Breathing Apparatus4/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesA field test of the NIOSH-developed training product "I Can't Get Enough Air" was conducted to determine if it led to improvements in miner's scores on a true/false test of their SCSR's functional capabilities and proper usage.
1/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesReports on a test system and computer program developed for using a three-axis ultrasonic anemometer to measure airflow in a simulated mine entry.
1/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper describes several fatal injury case studies, analyzes causative factors, and emphasizes preventive measures.
12/1/2003 - Peer reviewed journal articlesResearchers determined that different types of fire sensors could distinguish mine fires from nuisance emissions produced by diesel equipment. A neural network was developed for coal, wood, & conveyor belt fires in the presence of diesel emissions.
10/1/2003 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis article introduces a one-page checklist for evaluating cab design of construction equipment.
Communicating Hearing Loss Information to Young Children: Effectiveness of Lecture and Printed Materials10/1/2003 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis study evaluated two training techniques for educating young children about noise and hearing loss.
Occupational Electrical Injuries in the United States, 1992-1998, and Recommendations for Safety Research8/1/2003 - Peer reviewed journal articlesData show that 2,287 U.S. workers died and 32,807 workers sustained days away from work due to electrical shock or electrical burn injuries between 1992 and 1998. A primary causal factor was identified for each fatality.
The Concept of Degraded Images Applied to Hazard Recognition Training in Mining for Reduction of Lost-Time Injuries7/1/2003 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper discusses the application of a training intervention that uses degraded images for improving the hazard recognition skills of miners.
6/1/2003 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper discusses human judgment and decision making under stress. The authors assert that stress is one of the factors that decision makers must contend with in most life-or-death situations.
4/1/2003 - Peer reviewed journal articlesDevices to monitor the blind areas of mining equipment are needed to provide a warning to operators when a vehicle, person, or change in terrain is nearby. Tests have shown that it is feasible to add proximity warning devices to existing systems.
