ODNR Opens Mine Safety Training Center in Cadiz

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources today is holding a ceremony to tighten the final screw and officially open its Mine Safety Training Center. The agency says the new facility, located at 43029 Industrial Park Road in Cadiz, Ohio, will provide life-saving training for the state's miners, local first-responders, and others who conduct business in and around mines.

ODNR Director Sean Logan will officiate the grand opening, which begins at 11 a.m. He says the center will improve the ODNR Division of Mineral Resources Management Mine Safety Program, enhancing mine safety inspections and accident prevention, guaranteeing top-notch mine safety certification, and upgrading mine safety training for all Ohioans. The Mineral Resources Management division is designed to provide for the safe and environmentally sound development and restoration of mineral and fossil fuel extraction sites.

In 2008, State Sen. Tom Niehaus, R-New Richmond, sponsored legislation that enacted changes to underground mine safety issues. ODNR says the new center will help fulfill many of the new requirements. For more information, visit www.ohiodnr.com.
