Owners responsible for conditions in the Upper Big Branch mine should be held accountable for decisions they made and preventive measures they failed to take. Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission's Office of Administrative Law Judges• The safety of the aging workforce needs to be protected to ensure they do not suffer further hearing loss, and that communication with them in the mine HO not compromised.
Key components of the Mine Act include: Four annual inspections required at all underground mines• 109-236 requiring use of the NIOSH-evaluated Directional Lifelines for Mine Evacuations; and• It needs to be strengthened in the area of tools for the miner to self-rescue aSOURCE: NIOSH, 2005a. Reduction in inundations requires the application of technology to identify voids and the potential for inundation in advance, for example, via accurate surveying control and geophysical methods, which already exist and are in use at some mines.
These are delivered directly to the interested parties in real time. The lack of totally effective engineering controls to prevent, detect, and mitigate mine disasters; and• these materials based on NIOSH research on flammability of noise control materials in operator cabs;• The Commission consists of five members who are appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate and who serve staggered 6-year terms.
The Mining Program cannot directly attribute any lives saved to the research it performs. Intermediate goal 3, the prevention of mine inundation, is less relevant because the work is related predominantly to design parameters of stoppings and bulkheads, rather than the identification of better materials.

b 2seeset out as an Effective Date of 1977 Amendment note under. The effects of combined exposure to dusts and chemicals on the health of miners and the effects of various combined components of diesel exhaust, particularly as new pollution control equipment changes the chemical characteristics of the exhaust, need to be understood.
If granted, review shall be limited to the questions raised by the petition.

Deep mines can become very warm, making hearing protection devices more uncomfortable to wear—particularly for longer work shifts.
