Statistics show that mining accidents tend to increase during April and May when many intermittently operated mining operations begin producing again, often with new employees who are unaware of the hazards of mining.
Each Spring, the metal and nonmetal mining industry hosts cooperative mine safety and health training workshops around the nation to increase awareness of mining hazards and improve mine safety and health. During these educational outreach events, safety professionals from mining companies, associations, and MSHA share information and experiences in dealing with a range of mining dangers.
These seminars are not MSHA-sponsored.
