Mine fatalities hit record low last year

The U.S. Mining Health and Safety Administration has reported that 2009 had the lowest number of fatalities nationwide on record last year with 16 deaths from metal and non-metal mining accidents and 18 deaths in coal mine-related accidents, for a combined total of 34 deaths.  That is a big drop from 2008's lowest-ever record of 52 mining fatalities.   There was one mining-related death in Arizona last year.

One of the most important missions of the Mine Inspector's office is to protect mine workers.    Our MSHA training calendar is now online at our website at
