Abstract
This pamphlet described the third round of medical examinations required under the Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969 for working underground coal miners. The medical examination program was administratively divided into three rounds, with the third round to begin in 1978. The program included the following points: the filing of a worker examination plan with NIOSH; posting plans at the worksite; mine operators paying for examinations; x- rays being read by specially trained radiologists; notifying workers of the results of the examinations; passing changes in regulations along to the mine operators; compiling disease surveillance statistics; and publication of a periodic surveillance report.
