SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Purpose: This meeting is being held to discuss potential health and exposure topics related to the implementation of CDC/NIOSH's Miner Health Program administered out of the Spokane Mining Research Division (SMRD). The meeting is designed to identify current gaps in miner health research, discuss mechanisms to be established for improving communication and participation in occupational health research, and to consider how the Miner Health Program can be prospectively evaluated.

Matters To Be Considered: The agenda will include brief updates on current miner health (and related exposure) research. The updates will be followed by panel discussions regarding: (1) Mental health and substance abuse, (2) exposures as leading indicators of disease, (3) exemplar worker health programs, (4) heat stress and fitness for duty, (5) health data sources and surveillance strategies, (6) updating health and evaluation needs. Each panel will seek input and discuss the health and safety implications associated with these various topics, and identify gaps for further study. Agenda items are subject to change as priorities dictate.

The Chief Operating Officer, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has been delegated the authority to sign Federal Register notices pertaining to announcements of meetings and other committee management activities, for both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.
