Abstract
An analysis of the noise exposure of longwall coal miners was performed to quantify the intermittency aspect of their exposures. The study was based on the use of 58 full shifts of noise exposure data collected at 6 underground mines on 4 different miner occupations. It is concluded that the noise exposure pattern of these miners is complex and highly intermittent.
