About Mine Safety and Health Administration

Under ground or above, the Mine Safety and Health Administration likes to keep things above board. The agency enforces compliance with the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act. It attempts to eliminate fatal accidents, reduce nonfatal accidents and hazards, and promote safety and health in mines by performing mine inspections, investigating accidents, issuing citations, and conducting health and safety conferences. Divisions include the Coal Mine Safety and Health, and the Metal and Nonmetal Mine Safety and Health, which have about 100 offices. Part of the US Department of Labor now, MSHA was formed in 1910 as the Bureau of Mines under the US Department of the Interior. Its budget is about $350 million.
