MSHA Announces Two 2018 Spring Thaw Events

Each Spring, the metal and nonmetal mining industry hosts cooperative mine safety and health training workshops around the nation to increase awareness of mining hazards and improve mine safety and health.

MSHA has announced two 2018 Spring Thaw training events, one in Pennsylvania and the second in Maine.

The agency reported that statistics show mining accidents tend to increase during April and May, when many intermittently operated mining operations begin producing again, often with new employees who are unaware of the hazards of mining. The two events are not MSHA-sponsored, according to the announcement on the agency's website.

Each Spring, the metal and nonmetal mining industry hosts cooperative mine safety and health training workshops around the nation to increase awareness of mining hazards and improve mine safety and health. During these educational outreach events, safety professionals from mining companies, associations, and MSHA share information and experiences in dealing with a range of mining dangers. The event dates and locations are:

  • Feb. 22, 2018, 1 Country Club Lane, State College, PA 16803 (phone 717-234-2603 for information)
  • March 14, 2018, 76 Community Drive, Augusta, ME (phone 207-817-7575)
