MSHA: Regulations Impact More than Just the Mining Industry - How to Ensure Your Compliance
|Date / Time:
Many safety professionals believe that Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) regulations only apply to those companies that are involved in the mining industry. Although this may have once been true, this is far from the case today.
Nowadays, many other industries fall under the jurisdiction of MSHA when performing mining-site work. This means construction companies, some manufacturers, and asphalt plants-to name a few-could be impacted.
Recent hikes in MSHA penalties-the new maximum is $242,000 compared to $70,000 at OSHA-and the recent release of a pattern of violations final rule and "rules to live by" enforcement initiatives underscore the importance of ensuring your organization's compliance with MSHA regulations.
Join us for an in-depth webinar where will learn:
- An overview of the MSHA regulatory scheme
- Recent changes to maximum penalties
- What to make of the recently released pattern of violations final rule, the "rules to live by" enforcement initiatives, and the personal prosecution of hourly and salaried employees powers, which can be invoked even when there has been no accident
- How MSHA applies to an extensive list of companies outside of the mining industry, including construction, electrical, utilities, asphalt plants, off-site equipment maintenance facilities, roadways outside the mine site, and even some manufacturing companies
- How to best determine MSHA applicability to your organization
- Compliance strategies and programs to consider for those regulations that are applicable
- How to identify and evaluate resources to help you with your MSHA applicability determination process

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
