Edition Notes

May 15,  · GAO reviewed the Department of Labor, Mine Safety and Health Administration's (MSHA) new rule on lowering miners' exposure to respirable coal mine dust, including continuous personal dust monitors. GAO found that (1) the final rule revises existing standards on miners' occupational exposure to respirable coal mine dust. Media Advisory: Control of Respirable Coal Mine Dust Exposure in Underground Mines – Public Meeting Feb. 8. A new National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine study will assess monitoring and sampling approaches to inform the decision making of underground coal mine operators regarding the control of respirable coal mine dust and its exposure to mine workers, as mandated in the. Workers in the coal mine had high exposure to respirable dust and quartz, especially the development team that creates mining paths for the miners to extract coal15). Kizil and Donoghue16) searched of personal res-pirable coal dust measurements recorded by the Joint Coal Board in the underground longwall mines of New South Wales from to Information regarding adverse health effects resulting from exposure to respirable coal mine dust was reviewed as a basis for the development of new occupational safety and health standards. Evidence indicated that coal mine dust exposures over a working lifetime may result in the development of simple coal workers' pneumoconiosis, progressive.
