Abstract
Results of the National Coal Study are presented. Thirty two coal mines were visited and 5275 miners were examined during a 5 year period. The incidence and progression of coalworkers' pneumoconiosis was studied. Longitudinal declines in 1 second forced expiratory volume (FEV1) in coalminers were investigated. The author suggests that the degree and progression of pneumoconiosis has been reduced by applying the 2mg/m3 dust standard.
