BACKGROUND: Coal workers' pneumoconiosis (cwp) is a parenchymal lung disease caused by inhalation of dust from coal and rocks in the mine. It is possible to prevent the disease completely with effective dust control; however, the secondary protection measures (screening and surveillance programs) are recommended in cases where effective dust control cannot be achieved.
