Abstract
This report presented data collected by the National Occupational Health Survey of Mining for the mercury commodity. One mine was surveyed for this data collection. Four chemicals were found on the mine property for which the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has published exposure regulations. Three chemicals were found which have no NIOSH recommendations or MSHA exposure limits set. Forty two trade named products were identified to which the workers were potentially exposed. Potential exposures to noise were also noted. Working conditions suggested musculoskeletal problems could develop involving the forearm/arm/shoulder, finger/hand, and wrist. Two welding processes were noted, arc welding and oxyfuel gas cutting. Estimated annual usage data was provided for chemical substances, both generic and tradenames.
