NIOSH Exhibit and Technical Sessions
NIOSH will showcase a number of its latest products in mine safety and health research at the 2022 MINEXCHANGE Annual Conference and Expo sponsored by the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME) Feb. 27 to March 2 in Salt Lake City.
Find us at Booth #1708 to learn about our apps, technology, and guidelines. This year, we're highlighting two of our latest pieces of software. Learn how
- You can use ErgoMine 2.0 to perform ergonomics audits for three types of mining operations
- Using the Ground Support Factor of Safety Calculator can help you plan rock reinforcement at your mine
In need of easily displayed training tools? Pick up some of our handy infographics to offer a visual means for your workers to keep health and safety in mind. We're now offering these pages in Spanish.
Plus, pick up your copy of the latest version of the Best Practices for Dust Control in Coal Mining, Second Edition, and the Dust Control Handbook for Industrial Minerals Mining and Processing, Second Edition, as well as other materials.
Don’t miss our presentations on a range of safety and health topics. See schedule below for details.
