The University of Arizona's Western Mining Safety and Health Training Resource Center connects the mining community with mining-relevant information, resources, and instructional methods that increase the capacity and efficacy of safety training for western states miners.

The Western Mining Safety and Health Training Resource Center was established in 2010 by a grant from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The Center was competitively re-funded in 2014 and 2017 and is made possible through a collaboration of the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health and the Lowell Institute for Mineral Resources.

The Center offers (1) a range of safety and health training courses and workshops both live and online, including MSHA new miner and annual refresher, train-the-trainer programs in instructional design and assessment, and mentor-guided supervisory leadership; (2) a suite of highly engaging active learning resources that include training handbooks, table-top games, and computer-based serious games; and (3) industrial hygiene and occupational health modules, materials, and tutorials.
