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.
8/1/2003 - Conference papersThis study assessed the adequacy of cab design and determined the percentage of musculoskeletal symptoms among operators of heavy construction equipment.
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.
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.
6/1/2012 - Information CircularsThe National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) conducted the first comprehensive survey of the U.S. mining population in more than 20 years.

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.
