On March 26, 2020, Nick Scala of Conn Maciel Carey’s national MSHA Practice, presented the second webinar event in the 2020 MSHA Webinar Series which covered Preparing for and Managing MSHA Inspections.
Knowing how to conduct yourself while engaging with MSHA during inspections or investigations can serve to make the process more efficient, and also help operators avoid misunderstandings with MSHA personnel, which can make visits from the Agency spiral. This webinar served to give operators, and their representatives, a set of guidelines for how to conduct themselves when MSHA is on site. It discussed best practices for preparing for personnel and mine site MSHA’s imminent arrival. This webinar covered miner and company rights during visits from MSHA, and how to best position the company to avoid the issuance of harmful citations and orders.
During this webinar, participants learned about:
Strategies for interacting with MSHA while inspectors are on site;
Tips for preparing for MSHA to arrive at your facility; and
Best practices to train miners to accompany and manage MSHA inspections and investigations.
