IMA-NA Comments on the MSHA Diesel RFI
On December 8, 2016, MSHA and NIOSH will host a Diesel Exhaust Health Effects Partnership. This partnership will provide a forum for the exchange of scientific findings to date on the health effects of diesel exhaust and for a review of approaches that may enhance control of diesel particulate matter and diesel exhaust exposures to improve protections for miners in underground coal and metal and nonmetal mines. The Partnership meeting will start at 9:00 am. Following this meeting, MSHA will discuss with underground coal mine operators options related to refuge alternatives, and the need for incorporating voice communications in closed circuit emergency respirators.
These meetings will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh - Meadow Lands, 340 Racetrack Road, Washington, Pennsylvania, 15301. The meeting can also be attended via WebEx. Information on how to attend the meeting via WebEx will be posted on msha.gov.
