Mining Industry

DOL's Mine Safety and Health Administration works to protect the health and safety of workers in America's mines by administering the federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 and enforcing compliance with mandatory safety and health standards.

Safety and health issues in non-mining workplaces are overseen by DOL's Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

In addition, through its Working Partners program, DOL provides information on how to establish drug-free workplace programs that protect worker safety and health.

Use the resources on this page to learn more about mining operations' safety and health issues. Please note that elaws Advisors have not yet been built for every DOL law and regulation. Therefore, your issue may also be covered under laws not addressed by this Web site.
