Safety Alert: Seat Belt Use on Mobile Equipment

A review of mining fatalities from 2010 to 2015 showed that each year about three miners fatally injured in a mobile equipment accident were not properly wearing their seat belt.

Each year, miners’ lives could be saved if they simply buckled their seat belt while operating mobile equipment.  The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) are working together through their alliance to increase seat belt usage among equipment operators to help achieve the objective of "ZERO INJURY, ZERO HARM."
