Abstract This report summarizes the results of five-year study conducted by the Pennsylvania State University (University Park, PA 16802) concerning the noise generated in underground coal mines and the development of a model hearing conservation program for underground coal miners. It was supported by CDC/NIOSH under Cooperative Agreement U60/CCU315855-02. An underground coal mine in eastern Ohio was the primary site for data collection and implementation of the various components of the model hearing conservation program.
