DIR encompasses six Sections: Legal, Mechanical Compliance (MCS), Mine Safety and Training (MSATS), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Safety Consultation and Training (SCATS), and Workers’ Compensation (WCS). MCS is responsible for safety relating to elevators, escalators, boilers, and pressure vessels; MSATS inspects and provides safety training for mine operations; Nevada OSHA enforces health and safety standards in the workplace; SCATS offers Nevada businesses free safety consultations; and WCS ensures that Nevada workers injured on the job receive the benefits for which they are entitled. The DIR Advisory Council, comprised of governor-appointed members, provides oversight and direction to the Division.
