Mining Fact Sheets

NIOSH produces one-page mining fact sheets covering a variety of topics of general interest related to mining operations, workers, fatalities, nonfatal lost-time injuries, and occupational illness. Contact CDC Info at 1-800-CDC-INFO (1-800-232-4636), send an e-mail to cdcinfo@cdc.gov, or use the CDC online publication ordering form (http://wwwn.cdc.gov/pubs/niosh.aspx) to request printed copies of these publications.

The following tables list the DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Nos. for the mining fact sheets. Click on the numbers to access PDF versions.  Beginning with the 2007 fact sheets, links to HTML versions of the fact sheets are also provided.
