Captured in 2017, this image depicted a cloud of dust surrounding a rock drilling team, that was in search of emeralds at an emerald mine near Kitwe, Zambia. Note that the miners all were wearing a protective face mask, hopefully, efficient enough to protect their lungs from any airborne particulates. 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.
