The U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) awarded $1 million to fund training programs on safety and emergency preparedness in underground mines.
MSHA announced that seven organizations will receive the awards through its Brookwood-Sago grants program.
“Training is the key for proper, safe and effective emergency response,” said Joseph A.
