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.
1/1/1995 - Conference papersThe intent of this article is to provide guidance to mine operators concerning the use of four techniques for influencing mine employees to work safely: (1) employee surveys, (2) incentives, (3) fear communications, and (4) disciplinary actions.
4/1/1994 - Conference papersIn emergency management, the effects of stress on the performance of emergency personnel, typically have been ignored or regarded as too enigmatic to quantify. This paper discusses the concept of Critical Incident Stress in responders to emergencies. It...
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.
A 1986 probability sample survey, mining industry population survey, to measure such employee characteristics as occupation; principal equipment operated; work location at the mine; present job, present company, and total mining experience.
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.
Development of a Supervisory and Management Training Program for the Underground Coal Mining Industry5/1/1983 - Contract reportsThis report describes a project in which Development of a Supervisory and Management Training Program for the Underground Coal mining Industry was developed and evaluated.
7/1/1980 - Conference papersField studies have been conducted in a large number of coal mines throughout the U.S. to determine the effectiveness of electromagnetic techniques in locating men trapped underground following a mine disaster.
1/1/1978 - Peer reviewed journal articlesExtensive analysis of mine-communications systems has identified specific areas, in particular the excessive times required to locate key personnel underground, the inadequacy of existing phone systems in terms of capacity and privacy and the inability ...
