On Thursday, August 19, 2021 at 1 p.m. ET, join Nicholas W. Scala for a webinar regarding a Mid-Year MSHA Update and FMSHRC Significant Decision Review.
The first year in an administration is full of change and depending on the speed with which an MSHA Assistant Secretary is confirmed, by mid-year the agency can begin to take shape for the coming years. Therefore, maybe even more so than other years, it is imperative that we keep tabs on MSHA, and its evolving staff and priorities. This webinar will take a look at what has transpired at MSHA in 2021, including enforcement, new initiatives, and/or rulemaking. Additionally, it will review significant case decisions that have come down from the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission (FMSHRC) and its Administrative Law Judges (ALJs) that will impact the mining industry.
Participants in this webinar will learn the following:
- MSHA enforcement trends and initiatives through mid-2021
- FMSHRC decisions impacting mine operators and independent contractors
- Strategies to prepare operations for changing enforcement tactics and standard interpretations
