Under the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Division of Mineral Resources Management conducts comprehensive mine health and safety training for miners, mine operators and contract employees working in mining operations throughout Ohio. The program utilizes an internal core training committee, consisting of inspectors who are utilized as instructors to develop goals and to create methods to achieve these goals. Classes conducted and services provided are developed to meet the specific needs of the Ohio mining industry based upon NFDL injury incidence-rates, accident investigation reports, NFDL injuries, mining fatalities, over-exposures to PELs, and specific mining operations needs.
