Abstract
Data on health-related illnesses and disease in the mining industry are scarce, and information on rates and costs is not readily available. Substantial amounts of research are being directed to addressing these issues, including work at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health's (NIOSH) mining health and safety laboratories in Spokane and Pittsburgh. This paper briefly discusses the current state of some miner health-related issues, including those involving coal dust, silica dust, diesel particulate matter, asbestos, noise, lead, welding fumes, and skin disorders, as well as research and other activities aimed at protecting millers from occupational illnesses and disease.
