On August 8, 2019, Nick Scala of Conn Maciel Carey’s national MSHA Practice, presented the fourth webinar in the 2019 MSHA Webinar Series discussing a Mid-Year MSHA and FMSHRC Review.
An end of year review is always helpful, but with the ever-changing regulatory landscape, and a steady stream of Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission decisions, it is equally important to take stock of the landscape during each summer. We are in the thick of MSHA’s enforcement season and rounding out the last few months of the Agency’s fiscal year. What has changed since summer 2018 and how are the changes affecting the county’s mine operators and contractors?
This webinar explored year-to-date enforcement trends and updates, while diving into relevant FMSHRC decisions that are directly impacting MSHA and the compliance responsibilities of operators.
During this webinar, participants learned about:
MSHA enforcement trends and initiatives through mid-2019;
Impacts on mine operator compliance due to FMSHRC decisions; and
Strategies to prepare operations for changing enforcement tactics and standard interpretations.
