Work Safely To Go Home For The Holidays

 

Since 1995, there have been four years when no miner died while working at a metal or nonmetal mine in the month of December. In years 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2012, everyone working at these operations enjoyed a safe holiday season. In the other seventeen years, though, friends and families of miners experienced the tragedy of mourning loved ones during one of the happiest times of the year for most Americans.
