Recognizing that the highest priority and concern of the commonwealth must be the health and safety of the coal industry's most valuable resource, the miner, resulted in the creation of the Mine Safety Review Commission (MSRC). The commission conducts hearings concerning licensed premises and both certified and noncertified personnel involved in coal mining, who are charged with willful and repeated violations of Kentucky's mine safety laws and placing miners in imminent danger of serious injury or death. The Commission consists of three members, each of whom is required to meet the criteria of a Court of Appeals judge and complete the state's 40-hour new miner trainer program, is appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Kentucky General Assembly.

The Mine Safety Review Commission is charged with conducting hearings and issuing orders regarding licensees, coal operations and other persons involved in the mining of coal.
