How Changes to MSHA’s Workplace Exam Standard Will Affect Your Mine – [Webinar Recording]

On September 15, 2016, Nick Scala of Conn Maciel Carey’s national MSHA Practice, presented a webinar regarding How Changes to MSHA’s Workplace Exam Standard Will Affect Your Mine.

MSHA’s proposed changes to the Workplace Exam Standard will create logistical challenges for metal and nonmetal mine operators. MSHA refers to the workplace exam rule as “common sense,” but the impact on your mine operation will likely be complex, and sharpens MSHA’s enforcement teeth.

How will your operations adapt if the proposed MSHA Workplace Exam rule becomes final? Are you ready to navigate the new requirements and face challenges associated with its implementation?

Participants in this webinar learned:

  • New Requirements of MSHA’s Proposed Modifications to 56/57.18002;

  • How to Prepare for MSHA’s Implementation of the Rule at Mines; and

  • Tips for Avoiding Violations of the New Standard.

Here is a link to a recording of the webinar with slides and audio. This was the first webinar event in the Conn Maciel Carey MSHA Webinar Series. Plan to join us for the remaining webinars in the 2016 series, send an email to info@connmaciel.com to be registered for all remaining MSHA webinars.
