The Joseph A. Holmes Safety Association (JAHSA) is a nonprofit organization that began in 1916 to promote health and safety in the mining industry.  The WV State Council holds an annual meeting to recognize West Virginia miners and mine operations for outstanding safety achievements and records.  The WV State Council is made up of four local councils, North Central WV, New River and Winding Gulf, Coal River, and Aracoma.  Each year the WV State Council selects a COAL SAFETY LEADER from nominees submitted from local councils and the WV Office of Miners' Health Safety and Training.
