Caption: Captured in 2017, this image depicted Cara Halldin and David Blackley, as they were questioning a miner, while surrounded by a cloud of dust, kicked up by the rock drillers, who are visible in the upper right and left. These miners were in search of emeralds at an emerald mine near Kitwe, Zambia. At the request of the World Bank, and working in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), TB Program, a four person team from NIOSH’s Respiratory Health Division, including Cara Halldin, Anita Wolfe, Scott Laney, and David Blackley, was invited by the Government of Zambia, Ministry of Health, to provide technical assistance on the proposal for an Occupational Health and Safety Institute (OHSI) Center-of-Excellence. This first site visit, was a fact finding mission, the objective of which, was to assess what the OHSI already had in place, and to quantify their future needs.
