Goals & Objectives
Our overall goal is to serve as a training resource to the Western United States' mining industry. Because the EMCIS is primarily funded with grants, our specific objectives may change depending upon the focus of the current grants. Our specific objectives are:
To reduce injuries and illnesses in mining operations through a focused and comprehensive training program that:
- Educates mine workers on how to best protect themselves from risks and hazards in the mining environment
- Expand the number of qualified mine safety and health trainers in the United States.
