Abstract
The standard method for determining DPM concentrations in underground mines is time consuming and provides limited data. Therefore, NIOSH developed an instrument, shown to be accurate in both the lab and the field, for measuring real-time DPM. The FUR Airtec is a commercially available monitor that can be a valuable tool not only for assessing DPM exposures but also for allowing controls to be more effective in reducing these exposures. Some examples described in this article were evaluating enclosed cabs, adjusting ventilation, implementing more effective administrative controls. and assessing exposures in conjunction with a helmetworn video recording system. While this list is not all-inclusive, it demonstrates some of the potential benefits of the Airtec for mine operators.
