New Release: US Department of Labor launches app to provide miners access to health, safety, miners' rights information


"The U.S. Department of Labor's Mine Safety and Health Administration launched an app for use on iPhone and Android devices that will help get timely information directly to miners and members of the mining community

The app allows miners to easily use the tool at mine sites and outside of working hours to search for best safety and health practices and find resources on understanding their rights and responsibilities under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977. The app also sends users notifications of mining accidents and how to prevent them.

The app is divided into five main sections:


Safety Topics.

Health Topics.

Miners' Rights.

About MSHA.

A Contact Us section."
