Assistant Secretary of Labor for the Mine Safety and Health Administration Joseph A. Main issued a statemen

The Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response Act of 2006 is now 10 years old, and to commemorate the enactment of the act, Assistant Secretary of Labor for the MSHA Joseph A. Main issued a statement.

“In 2006, after the Sago, Aracoma and Darby mine tragedies that collectively claimed 19 lives, a bipartisan group in Congress came together to craft the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response Act of 2006. At that time, the MINER Act was the most significant mine safety legislation enacted in nearly 30 years – representing the first revisions to federal mine safety laws since 1977.”

Main went on to explain how the act made mining safer by increasing training, upgrading mining standards, improving emergency response and requiring enhanced technology.
