|Health & Safety Executive
HSE is the regulatory body charged with ensuring that risks to people's health and safety from work activities are properly controlled. It also receives, on behalf of Government, plans of mines when they are abandoned and arranges for their safekeeping so they are available for future mine operators and others with an interest in them.
|The National Archives
The National Archives, which covers England, Wales and the United Kingdom, was formed in April 2003 by bringing together the Public Record Office and the Historical Manuscripts Commission. It is responsible for looking after the records of central government and the courts of law, and making sure everyone can look at them. The collection is one of the largest in the world and spans an unbroken period from the 11th century to the present day.
The Access to Archives page, A2A , allows you to search across detailed catalogues from around 400 record repositories in England and Wales.
|The Coal Authority
The Coal Authority was established by Parliament in 1994 to undertake specific statutory responsibilities associated with: licensing coal mining operations in Britain; handling subsidence damage claims which are not the responsibility of licensed coalmine operators; dealing with property and historic liability issues, such as treatment of minewater discharges and providing public access to information on past and present coal mining operations.
