Mining Publication: Update on Mining Health and Safety Research
Mine Health and Safety Research was conducted formerly at four geographical locations within the USBM, specifically: Pittsburgh, Spokane, Twin Cities, and Denver. Although the Twin Cities and Denver Centers were closed, we have been successful in relocating/maintaining much of the core competencies to conduct a responsive, multidisciplinary Mine Health and Safety Research Program. With the closures and transition we have worked to maintain the core competencies necessary to address Health and Safety issues. In some cases we have made arrangements to provide the requisite core competencies through external organizations.
