11/1/2001 - Book chaptersFalls of ground continue to be one of the most serious causes of injury to U.S. miners. This chapter provides guidance to safety professionals tasked with preventing groundfall injuries, and includes analysis of MSHA's accident and injury data.
3/1/2001 - Information CircularsWorking in elevated areas near an edge is a common hazard for operators of off-highway mobile mining equipment. Serious injuries involving haulage trucks working at dump sites are examined for the period 1988 to 1997.
2/1/2001 - Conference papersOne recurring mine safety problem - a dozer falling into a void over a drawpoint on a coal surge pile - was analyzed using fault tree analysis software on a personal computer. The analysis identified basic and intermediate events that led to the burial ...
A listing of the mining-related publications produced by NIOSH from 1995 to 2000.
8/1/2000 - Conference papersResearch on techniques that will reduce the hazards in the mining workplace associated with coal bumps.
In-depth Survey Report: Control Technology for Environmental Enclosures - The Effect of Wind Speed Upon Aerosol Penetration Into an Enclosure at Clean Air Filter, Defiance, IA2/1/1999 - NIOSH/USBM numbered publicationsThe effect of wind speed upon aerosol penetration into an idealized enclosure was studied.
1/1/1999 - Information CircularsThis work identified the most important variables contributing to coal bumps. These are (1) mechanical properties of strata, including local yield characteristics of a mine roof and floor, (2) gate pillar factors of safety, (3) roof beam thickness, join...
8/1/1998 - Conference papersA comprehensive survey of mine seismicity a rock bursting during development of two sublevels at the Lucky Friday Mine, Mullan, ID, was conducted to better define rock failure mechanisms and sources of ground control hazards.
5/1/1998 - Conference papersThe National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is dedicated to achieving "safety and health at work for all people - through research and prevention." An important procedure in pursuing this goal is the NIOSH surveillance studies wh...
8/1/1997 - Conference papersResearchers from private industry and NIOSH have studied mechanisms of violent failure and have identified individual factors that contribute to coal bumps. They initiated a comprehensive study to develop tools for assessing coal bump potential.
