There’s a new free app available now to help miners receive important information directly from the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA).
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.
Its purpose is to also help miners use this information to prevent future accidents.
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.
It should be considered as an additional tool to reach miners quickly and simply, and to help keep them safe and healthy.
