The derivation of estimated dust exposures for U.S. coal miners working before 1970.
Am Ind Hyg Assoc J 1992; 53(4):248-55AI

Abstract

A number of reports on the prevalence of coal workers' pneumoconiosis in U.S. coal miners have been published, yet very little is known about the relationship between dust exposure and pneumoconiosis levels in the U.S. This report describes the derivation of cumulative dust exposure estimates by back-extrapolation of data processed by the Mine Safety and Health Administration after 1970 by using a ratio of dust concentrations based on information collected during environmental surveys at certain U.S. mines by the Bureau of Mines between 1968 and 1969. Cumulative personal dust exposure estimates were calculated by using occupational histories obtained from the miners and job-specific estimates of dust concentration. In other reports, the resulting estimated exposures have been shown to correlate well with various measures of respiratory morbidity.
