The Mine Safety Unit conducts training, obtains annual statistical reports from miners, issues licenses to operate, examines and certifies mine foreman, and provides mine rescue coverage to underground mines. With associated danger training, the unit protects miners from injuries and fatalities. The goal is to produce proactive results and reactive results. Safety and health training classes are provided by seasoned instructors throughout the state. Instructors provide new miner, refresher, and first aid classes that meet electrical, foreman, and compliance requirements.

Mine safety training is mandated by state/ federal government and requires all miners and contractors working on mine property to receive comprehensive safety training. Miners are required to provide the department statistical information annually.
