Mine Safety and Health Program

Call (508) 616-0461 for any questions.

The Mine Safety and Health Program is administered by the Department of Labor Standards in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Labor, Mine Safety and Health Administration.

The Department of Labor Standards (DLS) gives annual refresher training to miners and contractors. This helpsĀ prevent injuries and illnesses. DLS also conducts program audits. Under 30 CFR Part 56, safety and health standards must be in place for all surface metal/non-metal mines throughout the nation. Workers must go through an initial and annual refresher training of all mining employees (30 CFR, Part 46). These requirements apply to the approximately 150 mining operationsĀ in Massachusetts. They also apply to their contractors, such as electricians, drillers, and blasters. The mining operations include sand and gravel pits, crushed operations, and quarries.
