1/1/2011 - Reports of InvestigationsDust surveys determined if deep-cut mining expose face workers to higher levels of respirable dust. Study findings indicate that levels on bolting faces did not appear to be affected by longer cycles associated with deep-cut mining practices.
12/1/2006 - Information CircularsThis study presents a NIOSH cross-sectional survey of noise sources and worker noise exposures, discusses the survey's application to administrative and engineering controls, and reviews exposure reduction methods.
4/1/2018 - Peer reviewed journal articlesResults from a survey conducted to determine the number of atmospheric monitoring systems (AMS) used in underground coal mines in the United States, as well as an examination of how regulation changes have impacted CO sensor use.
1/1/2017 - Non-peer reviewed journal articlesA trade publication piece by NIOSH on information and knowledge gathering in an era of new technologies. The survey discussed focuses on miners' perceptions of gas levels, airflow, dust levels, and the location of people and equipment.
12/14/2012 - News and announcementsThe most comprehensive survey of our nation’s mining population.
9/20/2012 - Catalogs and indexesTask analysis is one of the basic tools that an ergonomist has to design and evaluate systems.
2/1/2008 - Information CircularsThis report summarizes a field study by NIOSH that documented the reactions of 30 miners at 4 underground coal mines concerning the use of personal dust monitors (PDMs) and how they make use of the information it provides.
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.
8/1/2007 - Contract reportsThis report describes the results of a pilot Safety Culture Assessment implemented at a small Appalachian underground coal mine.
8/1/2007 - Peer reviewed journal articlesNIOSH completed a survey of equipment sound levels and worker noise exposures in the mining industry. The findings identify the equipment and machinery likely to cause worker overexposures and the workers found to be experiencing overexposures.
