FOREWORD

This committee print contains the text of The Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969 (Public Law 91–173) as amended by The Federal Mine Safety and Health Amendments Act of 1977 (Public Law 95–164) as applicable to "other than coal mining operations”. The enactment of Public Law 95–164 effectuates four major changes in mine safety and health law:

It joins all miners, both coal and non-coal, under one law,

It repeals The Federal Metal and Nonmetallic Mine Safety Act (Public Law 89–577),

It upgrades the protection afforded miners by the existing Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969 (Public Law 91–173),

It transfers mine safety and health administrative functions from the Department of the Interior to the Department of Labor. The 1977 amendments make titles I and V of the 1969 coal act applicable to all mines; titles II (Interim Mandatory Health Standards), III (Interim Mandatory Safety Standards for Underground Coal Mines), and IV (Black Lung Benefits) of that act remain applicable only to coal mines. Accordingly, this print sets forth only those provisions of the amended law that apply to noncoal mining operations.

This print has been prepared in order to provide information and assistance to Members of Congress and the public with regard to the new features of the law as they apply to the metal and nonmetallic mining industry.

JOSEPH M. GAYDOS,

Chairman. (III)
