Comparing the implementation of two dust control technologies from a sociotechnical systems perspective

Mining Engineering, 2019, Vol. 71, No. 8, pp. 58-59
Haas, Emily J.; Cecala, Andrew B.; Colinet, Jay F.


ABSTRACT:

Researchers from the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) studied the impact of an unregulated dust control technology (the Helmet-CAM) and a regulated dust control technology (the continuous personal dust monitor) within a sociotechnical system (STS) framework to mitigate respirable dust sources. The results address how to best incorporate the overarching principles of meta-design STS during the technology integration process. Specifically, quantitative and qualitative data show that a prominent focus on the social factors within an STS framework could help reduce organizational unpredictability and may improve communication within the system to help reduce technology adoption time.
