Mining Product: EVADE Software
Original creation date: August 2014
The Enhanced Video Analysis of Dust Exposures (EVADE) software program, Version 1.0, is designed for analyzing dust exposure in the mining environment at surface mines through the simultaneous use of video and real-time dust concentration data obtained using the Helmet-CAM procedure. The Helmet-CAM procedure, developed by researchers at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), is a technique that uses a video camera worn by the worker to provide a visual record of the worker’s activities concurrently with data collected by a real-time datalogging aerosol monitor also worn by the worker.
The EVADE software program merges the video file and dust concentration data file, allowing the user to use a computer to view them at the same time to identify potential dust exposure sources. RI 9696: Guidelines for Performing a Helmet-CAM Respirable Dust Survey and Conducting Subsequent Analysis with the Enhanced Video Analysis of Dust Exposures (EVADE) Software (also included with the software) defines the input file types and provides step-by-step instructions for installing and operating the EVADE software to identify respirable dust exposure sources.
