The Joseph A. Holmes Safety Association (JAHSA) is a nonprofit organization that began in 1916 to promote health and safety in the mining industry and consists of representatives from Federal and State Governments, Mining Organizations and Labor. As part of this effort, the Association publishes the Bulletin several times a year, full of useful safety and health information.

Connect with JAHSA on Social Media
The Joseph A. Holmes Safety Association is active on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to improve its communication and outreach to its members and to the mining community. This website is still the primary source of information from the Association, but we are excited to add these venues.
Holmes Mine Rescue Association (HMRA) formed within JAHSA
On June 6, 2013, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the members of the Joseph A. Holmes Safety Association (JAHSA) overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment and changes to their by-laws to create a mine rescue organization within Holmes – the Holmes Mine Rescue Association. This action reestablishes mine rescue as an important function within the Joseph A. Holmes Association, which was created in 1916.
