Mining Surveillance: Potentially Toxic Occupational Exposures.


PB298973

Publication Date 1979
Page Count 28
Abstract The document has been prepared pursuant to Section 101(a)(6)(B) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977. That Section states that the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare '... shall for each toxic material or harmful physical agent which is used or found in a mine, determine whether such material or agent is potentially toxic at the concentrations in which it is used or found in a mine.' The Act allows eighteen months after the date of enactment for the transmittal of the first determinations to the Secretary of Labor. Subsequent determinations will be developed and transmitted on a continuing basis after the initial report. The Act designates the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as the agency in the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare responsible for health research in mines. In this first transmittal under Section 101(a)(6)(B) of the Act, NIOSH reports thirty-five agents found to occur in mines at potentially toxic concentrations.
