Results From the National Occupational Health Survey of Mining (NOHSM)

The National Occupational Health Survey of Mining (NOHSM) was conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) pursuant to the U.S. Federal Mine Safety and Health Amendments Act of 1977. This Act dictates that the Secretary of Health and Human Services "...shall, for each toxic material or harmful physical agent which is used or found in a mine, determine whether such material or agent is potentially toxic at the concentrations in which it is used or found in a mine."
