You're reading: Mining Safety Training Center in Luhansk

The center is the result of collaboration between the United States and Ukraine and will train all current and future mine inspectors working in Ukraine on the best coal mine safety techniques.

The center has been under development by both the United States and Ukrainian governments for the better part of two years, and is modeled on the Mining Safety Training Center in West Virginia.

In fact, the training program was created by taking American best practices in mining safety and adapting these safety practices to Ukraine’s unique coal mines, which are amongst the deepest in the world (they typically attain underground depths of 1,000 meters– that’s right, one kilometer straight down!).
