Mine safety chief commemorates Miners Act’s 10th anniversary

This week is the 10th anniversary of the enactment of the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response Act of 2006.

LR MinerPosterv5Assistant Secretary of Labor for the Mine Safety and Health Administration Joseph A Main said in a statement that all improvements in mine safety laws have resulted from tragic accidents.

In 2006, after three separate tragedies at the Sago, Aracoma, and Darby mines claimed the lives of 19 miners, a bipartisan group in Congress came together with the mining industry and labor representatives of our nation’s miners to craft the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response Act (MINER Act).

It was the most significant mine safety legislation enacted in nearly 30 years and represented the first revisions to federal mine safety laws since the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act became law in 1977.
