The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) grew out of the Mining Enforcement and Safety Administration, which was established in 1973. MSHA came into existence in 1977. Its purpose is "to prevent death, disease, and injury from mining and to promote safe and healthful workplaces for the Nation's miners" (MSHA web site).
Government Documents holds a partial collection of MSHA publications, including the following series:
Fatalgrams (L 38.15:) Detailed, illustrated accounts of mining accidents involving fatalities.
We also have a variety of general publications, pamphlets, and other MSHA materials, as well as laws, regulations, Congressional hearings, documents, and reports about mining safety and health in the U.S.
