MSHA adds new functionality to Mine Data Retrieval System

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has upgraded its Mine Data Retrieval System (MDRS) to include increased functionality and improved navigation.

David G. Zatezalo, MSHA assistant secretary, says: “The new Mine Data Retrieval System will simplify the process for operators and others to obtain key data points and compare the safety of their mines with industry standards.”

The administration says the solution offers a range of tools to help operators monitor their compliance with MSHA regulations. It provides access to mine location, status, ownership, employment, production accident, inspection, violations history and health sampling data. Users can also access MSHA’s compliance assistance calculators – pattern of violations, significant and substantial rate and violations per inspection day.

All the standard reports previously provided are still available, but now MSHA-wide statistical reports providing real-time data are also tied to the MDRS.

According to the MSHA, the system’s advanced search capabilities allow users to select entire industries, multiple mines, and ownership groups. Datasets can be exported into Excel or PDF for further analysis.

The MSHA will continue to seek feedback and improve the MDRS to assist all stakeholders and the general public in monitoring the safety and health of the nation’s miners.
