Abstract
To continue serving the safety and health needs of the Nation's miners, NIOSH is coordinating extensively with stakeholders across the country to obtain valuable insight into their priorities. This input, together with results from comprehensive analyses of safety and health data, has allowed us to begin balancing the mining research program to address the prioritized needs of miners in various industry sectors. This publication provides brief descriptions of the NIOSH projects dedicated to the primary mission of reducing miners' occupational injury and illness including: hearing loss prevention; dust measurement and control; diesel emissions and toxic substances; hazard detection and warning devices; injury prevention and equipment design; training and education; ground control; fires, explosions, and ventilation; surveillance; and emerging technologies. The breadth and quality of research represented here is a true testament to the dedicated NIOSH researchers working in this field. As problems and issues emerge, or are effectively addressed over time, the research program will change accordingly, but it will continue to be based on a solid, scientific rationale and anchored in reality. NIOSH is always looking for better ways to communicate our research and results. This publication is just one way we are reaching out to inform our mining partners and other interested individuals and organizations about our current mining research projects. I look forward to continued interaction with NIOSH's many mining partners.
