Proposed Project Enhancing Mine Workers’ Abilities to Identify Hazards at Sand, Stone, and Gravel Mines—New—National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description According to the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), 37 mine workers were fatally injured in accidents that occurred at metal and nonmetal mine sites between October, 2013, and January, 2015 (MSHA, 2015). By contrast, prior to October, 2013, metal and nonmetal mining had experienced several years of record lows for number of fatalities (2012: 16 and 2011: 16). Yet, in 2014 alone, 29 mine workers were fatally injured at a metal or nonmetal mine site, and half of these fatalities (52%) occurred at a surface stone, sand, or gravel (SSG) mine. It is critical that all miners be able to both recognize worksite hazards and accurately assess the risk associated with these hazards, because their health and safety depends on their deciding whether and how to remove hazards and mitigate risks. In order to study how SSG mine workers’ search for, find, and understand the risk associated with mine site hazards, a laboratory based quasi-experimental research study will be conducted. Over the two-year period of the study, a total of 85 respondents (45 mine workers, 20 safety professionals, and 20 students) will complete the pre-screening questionnaire. Each participant will be asked to complete each form one time. The pre-screening questionnaire will be used to determine which potential participants qualify to take part in the study. This questionnaire will be completed prior to the laboratory task and should take approximately 15 minutes for each respondent to complete. It is anticipated that at least 72% of the participants who are contacted will qualify and take part in the study. Therefore, a total of 62 respondents will take part in the study—30 mine workers, 16 safety professionals, and 16 mining students. We are interested in how experience (e.g., work experience, hazard recognition training experience, etc.) affects hazard recognition abilities. The laboratory study will be completed first. Participants will be shown panoramic images of typical locations at a surface stone mine site.

The participant will be asked to search for and find the hazards. During the study, all 62 participants will be asked to search pictures. The participants will wear a light weight eye-tracking system so that eye-movements can be collected and search patterns can be mapped during respondent to complete. All 62 respondents will then complete the Risk Assessment Measure (time to complete, 20 minutes), the Risk Propensity Scale (time to complete, 6 minutes), the Mine Specific Risk Tolerance Measure (time to complete, 6 minutes), and the Openended Questions (time to complete, 30 minutes). analysis to determine differences based on level of experience.

Proposed Project

    Enhancing Mine Workers' Abilities to Identify Hazards at Sand, 
Stone, and Gravel Mines--New--National Institute for Occupational 
Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 
(CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    According to the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), 37 
mine workers were fatally injured in accidents that occurred at metal 
and nonmetal mine sites between October, 2013, and January, 2015 (MSHA, 
2015). By contrast, prior to October, 2013, metal and nonmetal mining 
had experienced several years of record lows for number of fatalities 
(2012: 16 and 2011: 16). Yet, in 2014 alone, 29 mine workers were 
fatally injured at a metal or nonmetal mine site, and half of these 
fatalities (52%) occurred at a surface stone, sand, or gravel (SSG) 
mine.
    It is critical that all miners be able to both recognize worksite 
hazards and accurately assess the risk associated with these hazards, 
because their health and safety depends on their deciding whether and 
how to remove hazards and mitigate risks.
    In order to study how SSG mine workers' search for, find, and 
understand the risk associated with mine site hazards, a laboratory 
based quasi-experimental research study will be conducted. Over the 
two-year period of the study, a total of 85 respondents (45 mine 
workers, 20 safety professionals, and 20 students) will complete the 
pre-screening questionnaire. Each participant will be asked to complete 
each form one time. The pre-screening questionnaire will be used to 
determine which potential participants qualify to take part in the 
study. This questionnaire will be completed prior to the laboratory 
task and should take approximately 15 minutes for each respondent to 
complete. It is anticipated that at least 72% of the participants who 
are contacted will qualify and take part in the study. Therefore, a 
total of 62 respondents will take part in the study--30 mine workers, 
16 safety professionals, and 16 mining students. We are interested in 
how experience (e.g., work experience, hazard recognition training 
experience, etc.) affects hazard recognition abilities.
    The laboratory study will be completed first. Participants will be 
shown panoramic images of typical locations at a surface stone mine 
site.

[[Page 12733]]

There will be a number of hazards included in each image. The 
participant will be asked to search for and find the hazards. During 
the study, all 62 participants will be asked to search pictures. The 
participants will wear a light weight eye-tracking system so that eye-
movements can be collected and search patterns can be mapped during 
analysis to determine differences based on level of experience. 
Identification accuracy will also be collected to determine whether 
level of experience affects the number of hazards identified.
    After the laboratory study is complete, all 62 respondents will 
complete the demographic questionnaire. This should take approximately 
six minutes for each respondent to complete. All 62 respondents will 
then complete the Risk Assessment Measure (time to complete, 20 
minutes), the Risk Propensity Scale (time to complete, 6 minutes), the 
Mine Specific Risk Tolerance Measure (time to complete, 6 minutes), and 
the Open-ended Questions (time to complete, 30 minutes).
