  • Description:
    ErgoMine is an ergonomics auditing app for Android currently available in the Google Play store. This audit tool, designed by NIOSH, identifies ergonomics and safety deficiencies for three types of mining operations: (1) haul truck, (2) bagging, including small bag and intermediate bulk container filling and preparation for shipment, and (3) maintenance and repair in coal preparation and minerals processing plants. Unlike most ergonomic and safety audit programs, ErgoMine provides recommendations to address all deficiencies identified by the app. Mines can then implement these targeted recommendations to improve mineworker safety.
