7/1/2011 - Reports of InvestigationsThis document consists of a series of demonstrations designed to complement training on ergonomic principles.
7/1/2010 - Conference papersThis paper makes use of numerical models to examine the interaction between typical pillar systems and the surrounding rock mass for weak and strong geological conditions at various spans and depths of cover.
6/1/2009 - Information CircularsProceedings of the Second American Conference on Human Vibration held in Chicago, Illinois.
This paper describes how three mining companies partnered with the MSD Prevention Team at NIOSH to demonstrate that an ergonomics process could be systematically implemented and effectively integrated with existing safety and health programs.
12/1/2008 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper discusses ergonomic interventions that were successfully implemented at the Unimin Gleason, Tennessee operation using a participatory approach to reducing the risk of injury.
9/1/2008 - Information CircularsThis report provides managers, supervisors, and safety and health professionals with information on low back pain (LBP) and low back disability. It also provides the latest LBP research and describes methods to address the problem.
8/1/2003 - Conference papersThe advance-and-relieve method benefits from lateral destressing. Numerical modeling proved useful in studying the basic mechanics of lateral relief while investigating the sensitivity of results to different parameters using controlled experiments.
