Arlington, VA — The Mine Safety and Health Administration is requesting input on its updated Mine Data Retrieval System, an online tool intended to assist miners with accessing data and visualizations, including operator history.

According to an Aug. 22 agency press release, the revamped system includes:

  • An improved user-friendly interface.
  • Enhanced data analysis.
  • Advanced data visualization such as maps, charts and graphs.
  • Upgraded search capabilities.

Feedback can be emailed to [email protected]. MSHA will offer the original MDRS alongside the revised system until Sept. 7.
