- This document outlines the preliminary thinking of a working group organized to assess the need for research and development of instrumentation for monitoring occupation exposures in the Coal Conversion and Oil Shale Industries. The working group was formed as an initial effort to avoid a traditional problem associated with new industries, i.e., not recognizing health hazards concurrent with the development of the technology. The Department of Energy is committed to the protection of the workforce with the same degree of dedication as it has in developing alternative energy systems and supplies. It is hoped that early efforts to identify and monitor health hazards will pay off by avoiding situations such as the current one billion dollar annual compensation payments to victims of black lung disease.
