Mining Workshop: Diesel Aerosols and Gases in Underground Metal and Nonmetal Mines

NOTE: This page is archived for historical purposes and is no longer being maintained or updated.

Salt Lake City, UT: June 17, 2012

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) hosted a one-day short course at the 14th U.S. / North American Mine Ventilation Symposium to discuss issues related to reducing exposure of underground miners to diesel emissions. The workshop is intended for mine and safety professionals involved in assessing, controlling, and monitoring mine worker’s risk of exposure to aerosols and gases emitted by diesel-powered equipment. The workshop is designed to provide attendees with information on the multifaceted integrated approach toward addressing this important health and safety issue.
