MSHA has a million dollars for mine safety training

The US Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration has up to $1 million in grants for education and training programs to help identify, avoid and prevent unsafe working conditions in and around the nation’s mines.

The Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response Act of 2006  set up the Brookwood-Sago grant program to promote mine safety in honor of 25 miners who died in Brookwood, Alabama, in 2001 at the Jim Walter Resources #5 mine, and in Buckhannon, West Virginia, in 2006 at the Sago Mine.

Funding will enable grant recipients to develop education and training programs on safety and health for mine operators and miners, with special emphasis on programs that target workers at small mines.

Each grant recipient will receive at least $50,000 with a maximum individual award of $250,000. MSHA may incrementally fund these grants based on milestones and availability of funds.

The closing date for applications is March 24, 2017. To submit a grant application, go to www.grants.gov.
