Abstract
This report presented data collected by the National Occupational Health Survey of Mining concerning potential hazardous exposures to those employed in the mining of beryl. Two mines were visited during the preparation of this report. Thirteen chemicals were identified which have no NIOSH recommendation or Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) recommendation for safe exposure limits. Eleven chemicals were found on mine property that were regulated by MSHA. Workers were potentially exposed to 48 different trade named products. Potential exposure to the following physical agents was also noted: ionizing radiation, noise, temperature, and whole body vibration. No musculoskeletal overload conditions were identified, and no potential welding exposures were noted.
