Technology News 512 - Improve Drill Dust Collector Capture Through Better Shroud and Inlet Configurations10/1/2005 - Technology NewsThis research showed that a tight shroud is very beneficial for the drill dust collection system, while improvements for a leaky shroud could be achieved with collector-to-bailing airflow ratios >= 3:1 and/or by relocating the inlet.
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.
12/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesDescribes inconsistencies in disease and illness reporting in U.S. mining, identifies under-reporting of disease and illness in U.S. mining, and summarizes selected disease and illness in U.S. mining from 1983 through 2001.
2/1/2004 - Conference papersA study of heat stress exposures among mine rescue workers in underground mines. Investigating several engineering controls, such as cooling the air inhaled by rescuers through an apparatus, wearing cooling vests, and supplying thru the CCBA.
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.
6/1/2003 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper discusses human judgment and decision making under stress. The authors assert that stress is one of the factors that decision makers must contend with in most life-or-death situations.
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.
2/1/2003 - Conference papersThis paper briefly discusses the current status and research activities aimed at protecting miners from of some miner health-related issues, including coal and silica dust, diesel, asbestos, noise, lead etc.
