- Miner Safety and Health App in Spanish
February 28, 2023
Mine safety works hand-in-hand with technology, including our phones. That’s why the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) launched the Miner Safety and Health app for both iOS and Android systems. First launched in August 2022, the app is now available in Spanish.
The Miner Safety and Health app is a tool for miners to review best mine safety and health practices, find resources on miners’ rights and responsibilities, and report hazardous work condition complaints. By adding Spanish access, the app better reflects the needs of miners in the U.S.
“Spanish-speaking miners throughout the U.S. now have access to important mine safety and health information and their rights as miners in the palm of their hands,” said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Mine Safety and Health Chris Williamson. And with that access comes greater safety to bring every miner safely home every day.
