A pair of seminars are scheduled in the new year related to next spring’s thaw.

The first seminar is Feb. 22 in State College, Pennsylvania, while the second is March 14 in Augusta, Maine.

According to the Mine Safety & Health Administration (MSHA), statistics show that mining accidents tend to increase during April and May when many intermittently operated mining operations begin producing again, often with new employees who are unaware of the hazards of mining.

The metal and nonmetal mining industry hosts these cooperative mine safety and health training workshops around the nation to increase awareness of mining hazards and improve mine safety and health, MSHA says. During these educational outreach events, safety professionals from mining companies, associations and MSHA share information and experiences in dealing with a range of mining dangers.
