The Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969 requires each mine operator to implement the respirable dust sampling program established by the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare. This program requires frequent sampling of "high-risk" face workers and periodic sampling of other underground workers. Dust samples are collected by the coal mine operator and weighed at the Bureau's Pittsburgh field health group, and the results are processed by the Bureau's automatic data processing section located in Denver, Colorado. This paper presents the system employed by the Bureau to weigh the dust samples and to process and store the data.
