    • Description:
      "The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Enhanced Coal Workers' Health Surveillance Program (ECWHSP) studies the causes and effects of respiratory diseases related to coal mine dust exposure and provides vital health information to coal miners through health screenings and surveillance. Program Background: The NIOSH ECWHSP is an extension of the Coal Workers' Health Surveillance Program, which was established by the Federal Coal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1969 to provide early detection of coal workers' pneumoconiosis, also known as black lung, and to prevent progression to severe lung disease. The program offers easy access for coal miners to health screenings and allows researchers to identify trends in disease progression across the nation. Coal Mine Dust Lung Disease: Exposure to dust in coal mines can cause several lung diseases. These include black lung, silicosis, chronic oobstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchitis, and emphysema." - NIOSHTIC-2 NIOSH [2018].
