Reports on the results of administering the Maslach Burnout Inventory assessment to 154 MSHA accident investigators.
Full-scale laboratory tests provide information to longwall operators that would assist them in selecting control parameters to reduce dust levels for mine-specific conditions.
Discusses design criteria for making a proper acoustical enclosure where a machine operator can safely and effectively work.
Current State of Insert-Type Hearing Protector Fit-Testing: Follow-On Measurements in the Steel Industry and Fit-Testing in a Mobile EnvironmentA description of the current state of hearing protector fit testing and the software used for mobile field tests.
12/1/2001 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe most hazardous work environments share one feature in common: constant change. A preliminary typology of dynamic and hazardous work environments, along with a schema to observe the dynamic characteristics of these hazards is proposed.
12/1/2001 - Peer reviewed journal articlesDiscusses off-the-shelf technologies for monitoring areas that an equipment operator cannot see from the cab, incl. radar, video, and radio signal detection systems, and their effectiveness in detecting objects near an off-highway dump truck.
The Influence of Seam Height on Lost-Time Injury and Fatality Rates at Small Underground Bituminous Coal Mines11/1/2001 - Peer reviewed journal articlesUsing employment and injury data reported to the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) from 1990 to 1996, injury rates for both nonfatal days lost and fatality cases were examined by seam height and leading type of injury incidents.
The Effects of Low Quartz Mass Loading and Spatial Variability on the Quartz Analysis of Surface Coal Mine Dust SamplesThe objectives of this work are to 1) evaluate the performance of the P7 method on field samples of low quartz mass loadings, 2) evaluate the magnitude of dust mass spatial variability within an enclosed cab environment, and 3) estimate the subsequent p...
A successful emergency management effort involves many components. The authors suggest areas in three environmental elements that deserve further inquiry.
A method was developed to estimate the average workplace concentration of DPM that could be expected from using the new lower DPM-emitting engines now being approved by MSHA.
