9/1/2007 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis NIOSH paper documents coal miners’ reactions to the new Personal Dust Monitor (PDM), and how they make use of the information th PDM provides.
6/1/2007 - Conference papersThis paper discusses the social and cultural power of stories, and how they have been used to develop training for skilled blue-collar workers.
The Effects of Scaling Height and Scaling Bar Design on Applied Forces and Bilateral Muscle Activity of the Back and Shoulders10/1/2006 - Conference papersHand scaling is a physically demanding job responsible for overexertion injuries in mining. This experiment studied rib scaling from an elevated bucket to examine force generation capabilities and electromyographic responses to a prying subtask.
3/1/2006 - Information CircularsThis material was presented at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health's (NIOSH) open-industry briefing held during the 2004 Northwest Mining Association conference in Spokane, WA.
8/1/2005 - Reports of InvestigationsAdult learning theories, social learning theories, mentoring, and storytelling were all employed in the development of a series of safety training videos that have become very popular in the mining industry. This Report of Investigations describes the t...
1/1/2005 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis field study encouraged coal miners in WV and PA to engage in hearing protection behaviors. Responses from 307 coal miners showed that positive or neutral messages generated more self-reported hearing protection behaviors than negative messages.
10/1/2003 - Conference papersMiners, like many skilled blue-collar workers, are not traditional learners. They have not always been successful in classroom-type settings, preferring to learn on the job in a hands-on environment.
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.
3/1/2003 - Conference papersA discussion of how training videos created to get safety messages to miners were developed, how "master miners" and story lines were chosen, and how the resulting videos have been received in the mining industry.
9/1/2002 - Information CircularsDiscusses the principals of adult learning based on research in education and psychology, and stresses the importance of taking a systems approach to training.
