Presented by Nicholas W. Scala
With a full slate of commissioners at the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission (”FMSHRC”), there were a relatively steady stream of MSHA decisions published in the last half of 2019. This trend should continue into the first half of 2020 at least, which means the compliance expectations and standards that mine operators must adhere to will continue to evolve. This hasn’t been much more evident recently than when the federal appellate court mandated that MSHA change its M/NM Workplace Exam Rule. Additionally, this webinar will take stock of what MSHA’s priorities from enforcement and rulemaking have been year-to-date, and how any developments from MSHA or the FMSHRC are directly impacting the compliance responsibilities of operators.
During this webinar, participants will learn about:
• MSHA enforcement trends and initiatives through mid-2020;
• FMSHRC decisions impacting mine operators and independent contractors; and
• Strategies to prepare operations for changing enforcement tactics and standard interpretations.
