Presented by Nick Scala
MSHA citations and orders can vary significantly in severity, penalty, and how they might impact your company, whether mine operators or independent contractors, moving forward. Contesting MSHA citations is a right that all operators have post issuance, whether that is done informally through MSHA’s 10-day conference program, or formally through the Federal Mine Safety and Health Commission. This presentation will discuss the different avenues for contesting MSHA citations/orders, what aspects of the citations to look at when deciding whether to contest or not, and strategies for best protecting your company’s MSHA enforcement history.
Participants in this webinar will learn the following:
• How to contest different types of MSHA citations and orders
• What aspects of MSHA citations and orders are most important to review when determining which to contest
• Tips and strategies for developing defenses for the contest process
• The impacts of citations and orders on mine operator and independent contractor enforcement history, and how that can negatively impact the company in the future
