Safety and health in mines research advisory board (SHMRAB)
The Safety and health in mines research advisory board (SHMRAB) is one of the Health and Safety Executive's (HSE's) independent advisory bodies. During 2000 it was reconstituted as a sub-committee of the Deep Mined Coal Industry Advisory Committee (DMCIAC), now the Mining Industry Committee (MIC)
SHMRAB is chaired by Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Mines and has up to ten members representing employers and employees in the British mining industry and eight adviser members with relevant expertise in research or mining.
As well as advising HSE and MIC, SHMRAB's remit includes providing information to the mining industry on research matters relevant to improving health and safety standards in the industry.
