Inaccuracy of Area Sampling for Measuring the Dust Exposure of Mining Machine Operators in Coal Mines2/1/2002 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis study examines the accuracy of area sampling for measuring the dust exposure of mining machine operators at coal mine working faces. The work was prompted by the development of a prospective new type of dust sampling instrument called the machine-...
2/1/2002 - Conference papersMine fires can be especially perilous because toxic products can quickly spread well beyond the fire zone thereby exposing all underground miners to dangerous and deadly conditions. This paper provides a review of the available materials and technology ...
8/1/2001 - Conference papersA major concern in the mining industry today is how to train the present aging workforce plus the expected influx of new and less experienced miners and mine operators as the cohort of older workers retire.
10/1/1999 - NIOSH/USBM numbered publicationsThis is the Instructor's Copy of the document. This document contains most of the materials needed to use the exercises on proper self-contained self-rescuer usage.
10/1/1999 - NIOSH/USBM numbered publicationsThis document contains most of the materials needed to conduct a training exercise for remote control miner operators and face crews.

Overview of U.S. Research on Three Approaches to Ensuring That Coal Miners Work Safely: Management, Workplace Design and Training2/1/1997 - Conference papersThis paper summarized the past 20 years of U.S. research to ensure that underground coal miners work safely.
1/1/1994 - NIOSH/USBM numbered publicationsThis paper reviews the basics of developing safety interventions aimed at improving worker performance and describes approaches for maintaining program effectiveness. Emphasis is given to identifying performance discrepancies (hazardous behaviors) by ob...
1/1/1989 - Information CircularsThis report presents a literature review conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Mines summarizing what has been learned from recent empirical studies of the relationship between mine safety and the characteristics of miners, mine management, and mining companies.
1/1/1984 - Reports of InvestigationsA short-range locator system capable of locating trapped miners has been devised. The system consists of a light-weight, low-power radio transmitter incorporated into a miners cap lamp battery and a directional receiver carried by rescuers.
