11/1/2007 - Conference papersThis paper details laboratory noise testing results of a continuous mining machine conveyor system which uses a coating for the tail roller designed to help bring the continuous mining machine into compliance with federal noise regulations.
11/1/2007 - Brochures/flyers/pamphletsThis sheet explains your audiogram (hearing test) and gives some basic information about protecting your hearing.
10/1/2007 - Conference papersThis paper provides a method for predicting sound pressure levels at the operator’s position of a roof bolting machine in an underground coal mine using sound power levels determined in the laboratory.
10/1/2007 - Conference papersThis paper discusses the methods NIOSH used to identify noise sources on a roof bolting machine while drilling.
9/1/2007 - Non-peer reviewed journal articlesThe purpose of this article is to help identify some criteria of features currently available in audiometric equipment and audiometric database management software.
6/1/2007 - Conference papersThis paper presents an overview of ongoing studies, a progress report of results, and the implications for reducing worker noise exposures and preventing noise-induced hearing loss in longwall mining workers.
12/1/2006 - Conference papersA highly durable polyurethane coating has been developed for chain flights to decrease noise from metal-on-metal impacts. This paper evaluates this engineering noise control in reducing the noise exposure of continuous mining machine operators.
11/1/2006 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis report summarizes the results of noise surveys, consisting of full-shift worker noise exposure, time-motion studies, and equipment noise profiling for longwall and continuous miner sections in six underground coal mines.
10/1/2006 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis article describes noise research conducted in limestone mines, detailing the equipment likely to cause worker overexposures, the occupations experiencing overexposures, and the implications for worker noise exposure reduction.
Working in Noise with a Hearing Loss: Perceptions from Workers, Supervisors, and Hearing Conservation Program Managers12/1/2005 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis study outlines potential challenges regarding job safety and hearing conservation practices for noise-exposed, hearing-impaired workers.
