Increasing cognitive loads on miners’ brains: good example of where society is heading

Increasing cognitive loads on miners’ brains: good example of where society is heading | Psychology Professionals | Scoop.it

NIOSH is  under­taking a study to under­stand the cog­ni­tive demands placed on under­ground coal min­ers by new safety devices they must carry, with the indus­try increas­ingly deploy­ing wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tems, per­sonal dust mon­i­tors, and prox­im­ity detectors…The phys­i­cal bur­den is evi­dent, but the cog­ni­tive effect may not be as clear.

“Cur­rently, it is unknown how the increased phys­i­cal and cog­ni­tive load that is being placed on today’s mine work­ers will affect their health and safety… The goal of this project is to deter­mine: (1) What infor­ma­tion is crit­i­cal for a miner to safely per­form his job, (2) what processes (e.g., exper­tise, deci­sion mak­ing, atten­tion, etc.) are nec­es­sary for a miner to effec­tively per­form his job, and (3) how do the miner and the machine interact.”
