In 2006, several mining tragedies led Congress to pass the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response Act of 2006 (MINER Act). It requires underground coal mine operators to develop emergency response plans that contain several components designed to improve accident preparedness and response, including providing a refuge of air to miners trapped underground after an accident and wireless commun. systems. The Mine Safety and Health Admin. (MSHA) is responsible for approving the plans and ensuring their implementation. This report examines: (1) the effectiveness of the approval process; (2) the status of implementation of the plans; and (3) MSHA’s efforts to enforce and oversee implementations. Illustrations.
