    One Hundred Years of Federal Mining Safety and Health Research
    John A. Breslin, Ph.D.

    Physical Scientist

    Office of Mine Safety and Health Research, NIOSH


    This publication provides an historical overview of research undertaken by the U.S. federal government over the last 100 years to improve the health and safety of our nation’s miners. Federal research efforts began with the establishment of the U.S. Bureau of Mines (USBM, or the Bureau) in 1910. They have continued over the past century, even after the Bureau’s closure in 1996. It is hoped that this publication will give the reader an appreciation for the work of mining health and safety researchers over the past century, and of the miners served by this research.
