"Controlling Respirable Coal Mine Dust
in Underground Mines"
National Mine Health and Safety Academy
Beckley, West Virginia
November 3, 2009
MSHA, along with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), held the first in a series of regional one-day workshops titled "Best Practices for Controlling Respirable Dust in Coal Mines" on Tuesday, Nov. 3, at the Mine Health and Safety Academy in Beaver, W.Va.
The workshops will bring together a group of dust control experts from MSHA and NIOSH's Office of Mine Safety and Health to share their knowledge and experience and help mine operators control dust concentration levels more effectively in coal mines using practical dust control tools and techniques to prevent disabling occupational lung diseases. Mine managers and operational staff, mine workers, safety and health professionals, mine engineers, manufacturers, consultants and anyone else with an interest in preventing occupational lung disease in coal miners are encouraged to attend.
