Overview

Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) carries out mandates of the Mine Act at all mining and mineral processing operations in the United States; regardless of size, number of employees, commodity mined, or method of extraction.

MSHA’s mission, explained by the U.S. Dept. of Labor (2013), is to administer the provisions of the federally mandated Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, and to enforce compliance with legislated safety and health standards with the ultimate goal of eliminating fatal accidents, reducing the frequency and severity of nonfatal accidents, and minimizing health hazards, by promoting improved safety and health conditions at our nation’s mining sites.
