On the derivation of NIOSH policy: diesel use in underground mines.
Proceedings of the 16th Annual Institute on Coal Mining Health, Safety and Research, Blacksburg, Virginia, August 27-29, 1985. Karmis M, Faulkner G, Sutherland WH, Forshey DR, Lucas JR, eds., Blacksburg, VA: Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1985 Aug; :77-89
It is a pleasure to again be a part of the Conference on Mine Safety, Health, and Research at VPI. My best regards to our leader Dr. Dick Lewis and my compliments for sustaining this excellent annual get-together. With me today are five scientists from NIOSH who have been involved in various aspects of research and policy on the health effects of diesel exhaust. They are Bob Glenn, Director of our Division of Respiratory Disease Studies, whom you all know; Dick Lemen, Director of our Division of Standards Development and Technology Transfer in Cincinnati; Dr. John Gamble, also an epidemiologist with DRDS, Morgantown, Dr. Trent Lewis, a toxicologist with our Division of Biomedical and behavioral Sciences in Cincinnati; and Bob Reger, Biostatisticianwith the Division of Respiratory Disease Studies in Morgantown. Each of these people have made significant contributions to our understanding of the health effects of diesel exhausts. Taken as a whole, they are probably as knowledgeable on this issue as any group of five people in the World. Please take advantage of their presence by raising any questions, or issues which may interest you.
