Health & Safety Division

As a member of the Health & Safety Division of SME, you have access to professional networking and leadership opportunities with peers who share your career objectives.

The Health & Safety Division of SME aims to provide a medium of cooperation between and among those directly engaged in all aspects of occupational health and safety issues as they relate to mining and related industries.

The Health & Safety Division provides a forum for the exchange of technical information, through the publication of papers, arrangement of meetings and programs and the encouragement of education on any subject related to mining health and safety. Current Division activities and investments include developing and administering:

  • Technical sessions for the SME Annual Conference 

  • Awards for individuals

  • Monthly Mining Engineering magazine articles such as safety shares, synopses of important H&S topics, or notification of upcoming Division events – e.g., Certified Mine Safety Professional Exam (CMSP)

  • One-hour webinars

  • CMSP exam, preparatory course for the exam, and materials and practices necessary to obtain ISO 17024 accreditation.
