Health in mines

Technical Report:

Abstract

This report summarizes the information gained from research carried out under the five-year programme (1971-1976) relating to health in mines. This programme concentrates on technical means of dust control, and the various aspects of this topic are reviewed. The purpose of the epidemiology of pneumoconiosis is to determine the origin and development of this endemic disease with a view to formulating a policy of worker protection. The constituents of dust and their possible influences are studied. Measuring and determining the characteristics of dusts are the subject of the second group of research projects. Prevention techniques have been proposed, tried out and developed, thus providing the mining industry with a set of dust control methods. water infusion, dedusting on coal-getting and heading machines, control of dust produced by caving, etc. A chapter devoted to iron ore mines discusses means of protection against noxious emissions from Diesel engines and explosives.
