Check out MSHA’s new website

Agency seeking public feedback

Posted December 11, 2015

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) and various stakeholders have been designing a brand new MSHA.gov website. The agency opened a beta site for the public to test and is seeking public feedback before it fully transitions to the new site in early 2016.

According to MSHA, the new modernized site is designed to be easier to use, with better content organization and improved search capabilities. The new homepage has been redesigned to limit text, but provides quick access to important information previously listed on the homepage via a drop-down navigation menu at the top of the page.

MSHA informs that as you're exploring the beta site you'll find that most pages accessed from the homepage and navigation menu have been migrated into the new system. At some point, you will see some links to pages that have not yet been migrated from the old site. If you have any difficulty accessing information, just run a search using the search box in the upper right corner of any page on the beta site. The system will point you to content on the new site — or direct you to the older archived pages if they have not yet been migrated. MSHA encourages you to let them know if there is specific content you have difficulties finding.

To give everyone time to share input and get used to the new site, both the new and existing site will continue to exist through the end of this year.

  • Click here to access the new site.
  • To share your comments and suggestions: Use the “Submit Website Feedback” tab located on the right side of every page on the new site. Alternatively, you can email your comments and suggestions to MSHAWebContent@dol.gov.

While MSHA is looking for all types of feedback, please consider the following questions as you review the site:

  • Can you find needed information that you were able to access on the current site?
  • Are any essential elements missing?
  • Are there additional elements or features you would find helpful?
