I was reading about the the hashing documentation and it said that each miner gets there own separate hashes to work on how is this handled? Who distributes them?

You yourself. The very first transaction in the block is the generation (which gives 50 BTC to the miner). The address is one of your own in the wallet that was generated randomly.

Because the address is essentially a very large number, there is an astronomically small probability that two people are doing the same work.
