Abstract
The collaboration between the U.S. Public Health Service and the BOM, and later The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), is something that has not changed. Our relationship goes back a long way and has been a major strength of occupational health and safety. Indeed the early needs in mining were among the prime reasons for the creation, in 1914, of the Office of Industrial Hygiene and Sanitation, the first unit in the U.S. Public Health Service officially dedicated to protecting the health of workers. Today, I wish to address four points: 1) The role of regulation in the practice of public health; 2) the role of regulation in The National Strategy for Prevention; 3) the role of NIOSH in the regulation of mining, and 4) the major concerns of NIOSH about the health aspects of regulation in mining.
