MSHA seeks to survey how well miners understand their rights

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration is seeking public comment on data collection relating to miners’ rights in the workplace. The agency is performing a pilot study to determine how to survey miners’ understanding of their rights under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 and the degree to which they believe they are free to exercise those rights at work. MSHA is the third agency in the department to initiate this type of survey, following the Wage and Hour Division and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
