Missouri Company Recognized for Outstanding Safety Record
The Department of Labor’s Division of Labor Standards offers free safety and health programs for those involved in Missouri mining. Unimin Corporation began utilizing this training more than 20 years ago, in May of 1990.
“From management to miners, everyone involved makes safety the number one priority for all, and their safety record reflects that standard,” said Les Thomas, Mine and Cave Safety Program Director.
Unimin Corporation is a global leader in the production of minerals, and the leading producer of silica sand in the United States. Their products are used in the production of glass, ceramic, paint and coatings and fiberoptics. They are also used in the plastics, oil and gas, rubber, paper and construction industries.
