Set for October 9-11 at the National Mine Health and Safety Academy in Beaver, West Virginia, the free event focuses on risk management, emergency preparedness and other topics to help improve training programs.

Both metal/nonmetal and coal mine topics will be covered, with a small group format for easier interaction between leaders and participants.

“Training in today’s mining industry, more than ever before, is considered a foundational element in our relentless pursuit of improving mine safety,” organizers said.

The agency will also hold its 17th annual competition for those developing training materials for miners and contractors. Open to entrants from government, academia and industry, it includes categories in print, non-print (such as videos, interactive and presentations) and mixed media.

An exhibits area at the academy will feature materials developed by MSHA, the mining industry and recipients of state project grants.
