All active and intermittently active mines required to report injury and employment data under the Mine Act are eligible to receive a Certificate of Achievement in Safety. Online submissions are required by July 15, 2024.

Since 1978, MSHA has issued Certificates of Achievement in Safety to eligible mine operators. The specific rules and requirements to qualify for a certificate this year are referenced below. This certificate is distinct from the Sentinels of Safety award, which is sponsored solely by the National Mining Association.

Certificates of Achievement in Safety are awarded to all participating operations that have met all of the certificate criteria outlined below. Mines or quarries operated by a Federal, State, County, or Municipal agency also are eligible for Certificates of Achievement in Safety.

Certificate recipients may be recognized by MSHA at safety conferences or other gatherings, and may be identified in various publications.
