Rina Evans's curator insight, March 25, 2015 12:46 PM

"The encyclopaedia of Occupation Health and Safety is a great advantage tool especially for those people who are inclined to matters that this scope of expertise magnanimously discusses. The information that is provided to readers is a source of knowledge used for the improvement and further studies for researchers to broaden possibilities for the future. This somewhat brings enlightenment and more ideas to cover for businesses, workplaces, legislative laws and other agencies to revise and reformat the recent policies. I have read an article about an OH&S issue that happened in two countries, the process of finalizing the outcome of the proceedings has been delayed due to different international legislation that made it arduous to bear, although both follow the same OH&S procedures. Is there a way to make it easier for this kind of happenings from recurring? Maybe a new international law can be formed to start with to make a difference that would be an answer to this problem.”---rjevans

MSHA - End Black Lung - Act Now! | Occupational health, safety, and ergonomics | Scoop.it
Final rule issued to better protect coal miners' health
Yaniel Torres's insight:

The new rule will lower the concentration of harmful respirable coal mine dust that causes coal workers' pneumoconiosis, or black lung. It takes a comprehensive approach that includes: increased sampling by mine operators; use of new technology for real-time sampling results; immediate corrective action when excessive dust levels are found; determination of noncompliance based on a single MSHA sample; and reduced dust standards.
