Mine Safety and Health Administration

The Assistant Secretary of Labor for Mine Safety and Health has responsibility for safety and health in the Nation's mines.

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) was established pursuant to the Federal Mine Safety and Health Amendments Act of 1977 (30 U.S.C. 801). The Act of 1977 consolidates all provisions for mine safety and health under a single Federal law applicable to all types of mines—metal and nonmetal mines as well as coal mines.

The Mine Safety and Health Administration develops and promulgates mandatory safety and health standards, ensures compliance with such standards, assesses civil penalties for violations, investigates accidents, cooperates with and provides assistance to the States in the development of effective State mine

safety and health programs, improves and expands training programs in cooperation with the States and the mining industry, and, in coordination with the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of the Interior, contributes to the improvement and expansion of mine safety and health research and development. All of these activities are aimed at preventing and reducing mine accidents and occupational diseases in the mining industry.

The statutory responsibilities of the Mine Safety and Health Administration are administered by a headquarters staff located at Arlington, VA, reporting to the Assistant Secretary for Mine Safety and Health and by a field network of District, Subdistrict, and Field Offices, Technology Centers, and the Approval and Certification Center.

For further information, contact the Office of Information and Public Affairs, Mine Safety and Health Administration, Department of Labor, Room 601, 4015 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22203. Phone, 703-235-1452.

Labor Statistics

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is one of the principal data-gathering agencies of the Federal Government. In the broad field of labor economics, BLS collects, processes, analyzes, and disseminates data relating to employment, unemployment, and other characteristics of the labor force; prices and family expenditures; wages, other worker compensation, and industrial

relations; productivity and technological change; and occupational safety and health. Most of the data are collected in surveys conducted by BLS, the Bureau of the Census (on a contract basis), or on a cooperative basis with State agencies.

BLS strives to have its data satisfy a number of criteria, including relevance to current social and economic issues, timeliness in reflecting today's rapidly

changing economic conditions, accuracy and consistently high statistical quality, and impartiality in both subject matter and presentation.

The Bureau has no enforcement or regulatory functions. The basic datapractically all supplied voluntarily by business establishments and members of private households are issued in monthly press releases, special

publications, and in one of the following periodicals: The Monthly Labor Review, Consumer Price Index, Producer Prices and Price Indexes, Employment and Earnings, Current Wage Developments, Occupational Outlook Handbook, and Occupational Outlook Quarterly. BLS regional offices issue additional reports and releases usually presenting locality or regional detail.

Veterans' Employment and Training Service

The Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) is the component of the Department of Labor administered by the Assistant Secretary for Veterans' Employment and Training. The Assistant Secretary is the principal advisor to the Secretary of Labor in the formulation and implementation of all Departmental policies, procedures, and regulations affecting veterans and is responsible for administering veterans' employment and training programs and activities through VETS to ensure that legislative and regulatory mandates are accomplished. VETS carries out its responsibilities for directing the Department's veterans' employment and training programs

through a nationwide network that
includes Regional Administrators,
Directors (in each State) and Assistant
Directors (one for each 250,000 veterans
in each State) for Veterans' Employment
and Training Service; Assistant Regional
Administrators and Area Agents for
Veterans' Reemployment Rights;
Veterans' Program Specialists and
program support staff.

The field staff of VETS works closely with and provides technical assistance to State Employment Security Agencies and Job Training Partnership Act grant recipients to ensure that veterans are provided the priority services required by

law. They also coordinate with employers, labor unions, veterans' service organizations, and community organizations through planned public information and outreach activities. Federal contractors are provided management assistance in complying with their veterans' affirmative action and reporting obligations.

Also administered by the Assistant Secretary through VETS is the Job Training Partnership Act, Title IV, Part C grant program designed to meet the employment and training needs of

service-connected disabled veterans, Vietnam-era veterans and veterans recently separated from military service. Grants awarded under IV-C are awarded and monitored through VETS' national office and field staff.

Certain other VETS staff also administer the veterans' reemployment rights program. They provide assistance to help restore job, seniority and pension rights to veterans following absences from work for active military service and to protect employment and retention rights of members of the Reserve or National Guard.
