    In an effort to spare others the same fate, the Mine Safety and Health Administration published a final rule, which took effect in August , to lower miners' exposure to respirable coal mine dust in all underground and surface coal mines. From Aug. 1 through Dec. 31, — the first phase of the rule — more t dust samples have. (a) Approved sampling devices shall be maintained as approved under part 74 of this chapter and calibrated in accordance with MSHA Informational Report IR () “Calibration and Maintenance Procedures for Coal Mine Respirable Dust Samplers” or in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations if using a CPDM.

    Protecting against airborne dust exposure in coal mines NSW Work Health and Safety legislation defines airborne dust to include both respirable dust and inhalable dust. In the NSW coal mining industry, dust control measures such as the enforced regulation of dust monitoring and health surveillance continue to help protect NSW coal mine workers File Size: KB.

    The request for recertification must be made in writing to the District Manager. In addition, individuals seeking to be recertified may be required to attend an MSHA training course and will be required to pass the MSHA examination on sampling or on maintenance and calibration procedures for respirable dust sampling equipment. WASHINGTON — Despite concerns voiced by the mining industry that it would have trouble meeting the requirements of the rule to reduce respirable coal mine dust, approximately 99 percent of the 7, valid respirable dust samples collected during the first two months under the new rule met compliance levels, according to the U.S. Department of Labor's Mine Safety .

There also appear to be two distinct responses related to coal type. For specific coals the coefficients of determination, R2, are better than For general use the detector tube, using laboratory generated calibration curves, can be used to estimate respirable dust levels. Introduction. Respirable dust is the fraction of airborne particulates that can be deposited anywhere in the lung gas-exchange region ().While the size range of respirable particles is specific to an individual, for the purposes of dust sampling and regulatory limits respirable dust has been operationally defined as particles having an aerodynamic diameter Cited by:.

We (MSHA) have revised and updated our Informational Report No. (IR ) to include currently approved sampling equipment and to permit the use of fast-response calibrators having a volumetric tube. The updated document is Informational Report No.

Diagnosis of CWP is generally based on chest x-ray findings and a patient's history of working in coal mines, usually for 10 or more years.Recommendations are provided concerning respirable coal mine dust sampling to monitor worker exposure, the proper use of personal protective equipment, and medical screening and surveillance examinations.
