National Occupational Health Survey of Mining: Gilsonite Report.


PB90180720

Publication Date 1987
Page Count 28
Abstract The data on potential exposures to chemical and physical agents presented in the report were gathered by the National Occupational Health Survey of Mining by visiting seven gilsonite mines. Four chemicals were found on mine property which were regulated by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). Four chemicals were found which have no NIOSH or MSHA limitations set. Potential exposures to the following physical agents were noted: noise, segmental vibration, and whole body vibration. Musculoskeletal conditions which could be harmful involve diminished light as well as frequent, heavy, and awkward lifting. Three welding processes were in use: metal arc welding, shield metal arc welding, and oxyacetylene welding. Estimated annual usage information was provided for both generic and tradename chemical substances.
