Silicosis Screening In Surface Coal Miners

The occurrence of pneumoconiosis in surface coal miners supports including them within a systematic respiratory health surveillance program. The current surveillance findings are consistent with past findings of pneumoconiosis, particularly silicosis, in surface mining occupations such as drilling a

    Oct 13, 2020 INTRODUCTION. The recent reappearance of coal workers' pneumoconiosis (CWP) 1, 2 and emergence of artificial stone (AS)-associated silicosis 3-5 has represented a failure of preventive systems to protect the respiratory health of workers in Australia. This resurgence of pneumoconiosis has occurred at a time when production has increased, mining techniques have been further mechanized
