Speeches & Testimony

I appreciate the opportunity to be here today to update you on the state of safety and health in the nation’s mines.  

I am pleased to report that due to efforts by MSHA and the industry, we are seeing significant improvements.  Many of the actions we undertook around 2010 have contributed to those positive results and produced a road map for the future.

I appreciate the opportunity to be here today to discuss the state of mine safety and health.  Regrettably, Secretary Tom Perez was unable to attend. However, he sends his regards and was pleased he had the opportunity to speak to NSSGA leadership and members at the Roundtable meeting we convened last October.

MSHA, the mining industry and others have made many improvements, particularly in the past five years, that are laying the foundation for better protections for miners.
