In July 1991, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a request for technical assistance from the Mine Safety and Health Administration (NSHA) to estimate the prevalence of silicosis among active and retired miners at Central Silica Company, a subsidiary of the Oglebay Norton Company, in Glass Rock, Ohio. Subsequent to the MSHA request and the NIOSH medical evaluation, Central Silica Company merged with other industrial sand companies owned by the Oglebay Norton Company and was re-named Eglebay Norton Industrial Sands, Inc.
