Abstract
Since the implementation of diesel equipment in underground mines, the US Bureau of Mines (USBM) and more recently the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) have conducted research focused upon protecting the safety and health of miners using this equipment. These research initiatives ranged from initially evaluating the use of diesel equipment and the health and safety implications of this usage, to our current research evaluating control technologies and strategies to aid the mining industry in reducing miners' exposure to diesel emissions. This paper will summarize the diesel research history of the USBM and discuss more recent successes of NIOSH diesel research that have improved the health and safety conditions for underground miners.
