    • Description:
      "The Pittsburgh Mining Research Division (PMRD) is part of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). PMRD conducts research to reduce a wide variety of occupational safety and health hazards. PMRD works to eliminate mining fatalities, injuries, and illnesses across all mining sectors. PMRD partners with labor, mining associations, equipment manufacturers, mine operators, and other government agencies to collect data, develop and test software, create and review new technologies, and offer solutions to workplace challenges. PMRD testing facilities - some of them unique in the world - include specialized labs, full-scale galleries, and sophisticated technical instrumentation: 1. The Safety Research and Experimental Coal Mines provide real mine environments for health and safety studies. 2. The Hemi-Anechoic Chamber is used to pinpoint hazardous noise on mining machines. 3. The Virtual Immersion and Simulation Laboratory creates safe simulations of hazardous mining situations. 4. The Mine Illumination Laboratory tests improved lighting technologies." - NIOSHTIC-2
