Various reports were presented at this international conference on the health of miners. The individual topics considered included: respiratory disease in miners, radiation and disease in underground miners, vibration and mining, noise induced hearing loss, physical agents such as lighting, respiratory diseases including progressive massive fibrosis, symptoms, and coal workers' pneumoconiosis; traumatic injuries including fatalities, lost work days, medical care delivered underground, safety data, and risk assessment; respiratory diseases in oil shale workers, pneumoconiosis among Korean coal workers, dust control in Indian mines, and assessing airborne coal dust; physical agents including hazards to uranium and potash mine workers, hot environments, nonauditory effects of industrial noise, hearing conservation, and hearing protectors; respiratory diseases and their relationship to diesel emissions; occupational health programs; respiratory diseases in cement workers, uranium miners, the risk from tremolite (14567738) in talc, and diesel fumes; occupational health programs concerned with quartz (14808607) dust sources, noise exposures, changes in health conditions in the coal mine, inter reader variability among x-ray readers, work physiology, black lung clinics, compliance behavior, substance abuse, collective bargaining, radiation dose limits, quartz, dust exposure evaluations, and asbestosis; musculoskeletal/ergonomics including injury prevention, vibration characteristics, work task identification, cost analysis, and whole body vibration; musculoskeletal/traumatic injury including the electromyographic analysis of two techniques for squat lifting, accident prevention programs, causative factors, and emergency medical care.
