9/19/2012 - Training materialsLoud noise can permanently damage your hearing. It especially affects the sounds that help you understand speech. To hear what this sounds like, try these computer-generated samples.
2/4/2012 - PC softwareSoftware to simplify the record-keeping and analysis associated with time-motion studies and worker noise exposures, making it easier to identify and solve noise problems.
11/1/2010 - Brochures/flyers/pamphletsThis publication addresses what you can do when you are exposed to hazardous noise.
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.
12/1/2006 - Conference papersThis paper presents a method using a ray-tracing technique to determine absorption coefficients for underground mines. Absorption coefficients are determined and presented for octave bands from 63 Hz to 8 kHz.
4/8/2019 - Contracts and cooperative agreementsA contract to improve the performance of TTE radio systems intended for use in coal mine emergency communications between the mine and the surface.
4/2/2019 - Research projectsA project to assess whether vibration intensity can successfully be measured on heavy-duty mining equipment and the human body simultaneously using technology capable of evaluating hand-arm vibration (HAV) and its possible translation to the hearing canal.
3/1/2019 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article presenting an assessment of hearing conservation program compliance, and excessive noise exposure and hearing loss risks for both coal and non-coal mining divisions through evaluating MSHA citations.
Improved NIOSH Collapsible Drill Steel Enclosure (CDSE) Prototype Helps Reduce Roof Bolting Drilling Noise11/15/2018 - Research areasRead about a NIOSH-developed noise control technology that reduces noise emissions when drilling holes during roof bolting.
10/3/2018 - Calls for participationPlan to attend this important webinar on hearing loss in mining on Nov. 1, 2018.
