SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Diesel particulate matter (DPM) is a carcinogen that consists of tiny particles present in diesel engine exhaust that can readily penetrate into the deepest recesses of the lungs. Despite ventilation, the confined underground mine work environment may contribute to significant concentrations of particles produced by equipment used in the mine. Underground miners are exposed to higher concentrations of DPM than any other occupational group. As a result, they face a significantly greater risk than other workers of developing such diseases as lung cancer, heart failure, serious allergic responses, and other cardiopulmonary problems. The DPM regulation established a permissible exposure limit to total carbon, which is a surrogate for measuring a miner’s exposure to DPM. These regulations include a number of other requirements for the protection of miners’ health. The DPM regulations contain information collection requirements for underground metal nonmetal mine operators under sections 57.5060, 57.5065, 57.5066, 57.5070, 57.5071, and 57.5075(a) and (b)(3).
