On December 12, 2019, Nick Scala of Conn Maciel Carey’s national MSHA Practice, presented the sixth and final webinar in the 2019 MSHA Webinar Series discussing Requirements and Limitations of MSHA Citations and Orders.
While most operators know how to respond to an inspector issuing 104(A) citations, what happens when the inspector issues a 104(B) or 107(A) or 104(D)? Each citation and order issued by MSHA either requires or prohibits some action from an operator, whether the production operator or independent contractor. Sometimes, a single order mandates action or inaction by both parties.
This webinar reviewed MSHA’s available citations and orders, with an emphasis on the appropriate reaction by operators to prevent further enforcement and safeguard contest rights.
During this webinar, participants learned about:
Available citations and orders that can be issued by MSHA inspectors;
How to identify what action should be taken, or what action is prohibited, depending on the citation/order issued; and
How to preserve an operator’s contest rights while complying with MSHA issuances.
Here is a link to a recording of the webinar with audio, and a copy of the slides. Thank you to all of those who joined the 2019 MSHA Webinar Series. The 2020 MSHA Webinar Series Schedule will be posted soon!
