Nebraska college receives grant from MSHA
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has awarded a $66,623 grant to the Safety Center at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. The money will be used for training of Nebraska miners.
In addition to training new miners, the grant also covers retraining of miners working at both surface and underground mines.
The funds are part of a nationwide allocation of $8.3 million for health and safety training. Grants are awarded based on applications from states, and they are administered by state mine inspectors’ offices, state departments of labor, and state-supported colleges and universities. Each recipient is required to tailor the program to the needs of its mines and miners, which includes mining conditions and hazards miners may encounter.
