||In some coalfields of the United States, many mines are operating above and/or beneath previously mined seams. These operations can cause roof falls and other accidents that can threaten the safety of miners. This information sheet describes research undertaken by NIOSH on multiple-seam mining and summarizes the contents of two publications: a first document consists of a compendium of a variety of papers on recent knowledge about the safety of multiple-seam mining; the second report presents a software package which is a simple user-friendly computer program to help mine planners.
