Diesel Exhaust Health Effects Partnership
A partnership between MSHA and NIOSH to share information on issues related to diesel exhaust and potential health effects.
The partnership held a Diesel Technology Workshop on January 23, 2019, in Washington, D.C.
MSHA has extended the comment period for the Agency's Request for Information on Exposure of Underground Miners to Diesel Exhaust through September 25, 2020.
