Joseph A. Holmes Safety Association
The Joseph A. Holmes Safety Association (JAHSA) was founded in 1916. Twenty-four leading national organizations representing the mining, metallurgical and allied industries responded to the need to reduce accidents, fatalities and mining related illnesses in the mining and allied industries by creating a safety awards program.
Various individual type awards such as hero award and merit award are issued by the association. The JAHSA also issue awards for persons with 10, 20, 30, 40 years without lost time accidents.
