Joseph A. Holmes Safety Association
Professional Miner Recognition


The Joseph A. Holmes Safety Association (JAHSA) was organized in 1916 to promote health and safety in the mining industry. The Association currently recognizes miners and mine operators for supporting these values. The Association also sponsors the "Professional Miner Program," which recognizes individual miners who have worked injury free for various periods of time. Through the program, the Association can communicate directly with individual miners using mail and E-mail regarding health and safety matters.
