US Department of Labor announces proposed rule to reduce silica dust exposure, better protect miners’ health
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor today announced a proposal by its Mine Safety and Health Administration to amend current federal standards to better protect the nation’s miners from health hazards related to exposure to respirable crystalline silica, or silica dust. The proposed rule change will ensure miners have at least the same level of protections as workers in other industries.
Unhealthy levels of silica, a carcinogen, and exposures over time cause severe illnesses, including silicosis; progressive massive fibrosis; non-malignant respiratory disease, such as emphysema; kidney disease; and lung cancer. Exposure to mixed coal mine dust that contains respirable crystalline silica can lead to the development of coal workers’ pneumoconiosis, commonly known as black lung disease; multi-dust pneumoconiosis; and progressive massive fibrosis.
The proposed rule would require mine operators to maintain miners’ Permissible Exposure Limit to respirable crystalline silica at or below 50 micrograms per cubic meter of air for a full shift exposure, calculated as an 8-hour time weighted average. If a miner’s exposure exceeds the limit, the proposed rule would require operators to take immediate corrective actions to come into compliance.
FLORIDA MINING HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE 2023 – DARREN CONN FOURTH ANNUAL SURFACE MINING EMERGENCY RESPONSE TRAINING AND COMPETITION
The Florida Mine Safety Program welcomed its ﬁrst inductee to the Florida Mining Hall of Fame during the Fourth Annual Surface Mining Emergency Response Training and Competition Banquet and Awards Ceremony on March 2, 2023 at the Goodwood Planta on and Museum in Tallahassee, Florida.
Darren Conn became the ﬁrst inductee of Florida’s Mining Hall of Fame which was established to commemorate exceptional ﬁgures who work to make a diﬀerence every day in moving Florida’s mine rescue coemptions forward.
The Florida Mine Safety Program aims to educate those who partake in mining operations by assisting mining companies and contactors with their health and safety training. The Annual Surface Mining Emergency Response Training and Competition provides a fun and eﬀective way for our hard-working miners, emergency responders and safety workers to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to the safety and emergency response ﬁelds by providing intensive training sessions, demonstrations, and emergency response scenarios throughout the event.
Darren positively inﬂuenced the quality of our experiences through testing, training, development and implementation of intensive ﬁeld practical drills through Surface Mining Contests. The Mining Hall of Fame Award was created to recognize the best of the best leaders that embody Respect, Integrity, Success, and Engagement. Darren Conn did “RISE” to the occasion, becoming Florida’s ﬁrst inductee! Darren was presented with the 2023 Mining Hall of Fame Inductee Award by Samuel K. Pierce, retired (Acting Administrator for Enforcement with the Mine Safety and Health Administraon), with the assistance of Karen Miller, Mining Program Manager with Florida’s MSHA State Grants (Mine Safety Training Program).
On June 22, 2023 the Eastern Pennsylvania and Mid-Atlantic Chapters ISEE hosted an 8 hr. Blasters Training at the Blair County Convention Center in Altoona, PA. There were 22 participants and 10 speakers.
The agenda included Robert McClure, RAM Inc.; Mike Koehler, B.E. Consultants, Inc.; Joey Accardo, Epiroc; Donald Orye, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration; Kim Gdovichin, Lancer Insurance; Bethany Witter, Dyno Nobel; Jay Elkin, Wampum Hardware Co.; Dave Harrison, Terra-Mechanics, Inc.; Douglas Rudenko, PG, Vibra-Tech Engineers, Inc.; and Haley Sparkman, Orica.
Let's take a trip down memory lane and revisit a Boombox that left it’s mark on ISEE, a decade ago.
A Boom box design was featured in the logo for the Eastern PA Drilling and Blasting Conference in 2013, becoming a symbol of the dynamic and vibrant community within ISEE and the explosives industry.
The PA conference offered a valuable opportunity for industry professionals, suppliers, and experts to come together and share knowledge on drilling, blasting, and explosives.
We invite you to take a moment to look through these nostalgic photos from the 2013 Eastern PA Drilling and Blasting Conference. These images act as a reminder to the dynamic history that has shaped the industry. We hope they bring back memories and inspire you for the future.
Does the boombox bring back industry memories? Share your photos and videos with ISEE! Email email@example.com.
