Entitled, “NIOSH Focuses on Mineworkers’ Safety and Health”, this image depicts this 70-year-old coal miner working underground in the anthracite coal fields of Eastern Pennsylvania. The Coal Workers Health Surveillance Program (CWHSP) is a medical monitoring program for underground coal miners, established under the Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969. This program provides a tool for protecting the health of participating miners, and documents trends and patterns of pneumoconiosis in US coal mines.
