On November 15, 2016, Nick Scala of Conn Maciel Carey’s national MSHA Practice, presented a webinar regarding Navigating Multi-Employer Mine Sites: Liability and Enforcement.
Independent contractors are a vital element to the mining industry. Mine operators call upon their expertise daily at mines around the country. But what happens when an independent contractor arrives at your mine site?
This webinar discussed common pitfalls facing the mine operator – independent contractor relationship, and provided suggestions for streamlining the relationship and ensuring compliance with MSHA.
Participants learned about:
MSHA Liability and Responsibility Under the Mine Act;
Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements for Mine Operators and Independent Contractors; and
Training Requirements for Mine Operators and Independent Contractors.
Here is a link to a recording of the webinar with slides and audio. This was the third webinar event in the Conn Maciel Carey MSHA Webinar Series.
