Arlington, VA — Now available in Spanish: a Mine Safety and Health Administration mobile app designed to promptly deliver safety and health information to miners and other members of the mining industry.

Users must switch their phone settings to Spanish to use the free resource in that language, the agency says.

The app features five main sections: Safety Topics, Health Topics, Miners’ Rights, About MSHA and Contact Us.

“Spanish-speaking miners throughout the United States now have access to important mine safety and health information and their rights as miners in the palm of their hands,” MSHA administrator Chris Williamson said in a press release, adding that the app is “a resource that empowers miners and helps them play active roles in mine safety and health.”

The app is available for iPhone and Android devices.
