Abstract
This report prepared by the National Occupational Health Survey of Mining (NOHSM) presented statistics concerning safety in the potash population of active mining facilities. Eight sampling sites were selected from the active potash community. Six of these were surveyed between January 1984 and June 1985. The other two sites were not surveyed. Information on products and conditions to which workers were potentially exposed was provided in tabular form. For the potash commodity there were 17 Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) regulated chemicals, three chemicals that had NIOSH recommended exposure limits but that were not regulated by MSHA, 15 chemicals that had no NIOSH or MSHA recommended exposure limits, 850 trade name products, six physical agent conditions, 12 musculoskeletal system overload conditions, and 13 welding processes. The number of workers potentially exposed to each product or condition was included, and information was provided on the occupations of potentially exposed workers and locations where workers had potential exposure. For each chemical, an estimate of the annual usage was made.
