Miners have a new tool to stay safe and healthy
The Mine Safety and Health Administration’s mission is to help ensure miners go home from work safe and healthy. As a result of countless conversations, feedback from miners and members of the mining community, MSHA now has an app available to provide information directly to miners.
The app does not relieve mine owners and operators of their responsibility to provide thorough, substantive training that is updated as new information becomes available. The app is an additional tool to reach miners quickly and simply and help keep them safe and healthy.
Miners can use the app to know and understand their rights and responsibilities as miners, to search and use best safety and health practices, and to receive notifications of accidents in the mining community – and how to prevent them.
The app is available free in English and Spanish and can be found by clicking Android or iPhone and can also be found at the respective app stores by searching for “Miner Safety & Health.”
