Do you ever feel like you're alone in experiencing inconsistent or heavy-handed MSHA enforcement? If so, there's a new website where mine operators from around the country are able to share their experiences, post citations they have received, and learn more about MSHA enforcement nationwide.
If you haven't already checked it out, please take this opportunity to visit www.mshaenforcementalerts.com. You will find an active site where mine operators of participating Associations are able to post information regarding citations that may indicate new MSHA initiatives, assess high penalties, or cite conditions not previously cited by the Agency. Even if you are not a member of a participating Association, this website will provide useful information to your Company that may alert you to a new initiative in time to avoid a future citation.
If you have any questions about the website, I would be happy to help get your questions answered. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy this free resource to the mining community.
