MSHA Basics: The Mine Act and MSHA Inspection Powers
The Federal Mine Safety & Health Act of 1977 (“The Mine Act”) created the agency that we know today as MSHA and codified its authority and powers that govern America’s mining industry to date. Unlike the OSH Act, the Mine Act mandated MSHA conduct inspections each year – two per year at active surface operations and four per year at an underground mine. However, required inspections are not the limit of MSHA’s authority to conduct investigations, and are not the limit of the investigations it is required to complete.

This webinar will review the Mine Act and MSHA’s authority to conduct inspections at the country’s mine sites.

The webinar will also review MSHA’s powers beyond regular safety and health inspection, and provide best practices for preparing your operation for MSHA’s inevitable visit.

Participants in this webinar will learn the following:

• The Mine Act and the creation of MSHA and the FMSHRC
• Review MSHA’s inspection authority and inspections MSHA is required to complete
• Best practices for preparing your site and team for MSHA’s inspections
