Summary of Project

The use of personal dust monitoring devices is an effective way of informing coal operators and mine workers of their exposure to respirable dust. Respirable dust monitoring and control are essential risk management measures. However, there is no real-time dust monitoring system on the market at present that meets the requirements of respirable dust monitoring for the Queensland coal mining industry.
