The upcoming New Year brings with it a new chapter for the mining industry under MSHA regulation. This will mark the agency’s first full year with the Trump Administration, and it begins with MSHA’s leadership team appointed, confirmed and in place. This leaves the industry with questions regarding the status moving forward of past enforcement initiatives, such as impact inspections, Rules to Live By and pending rulemaking, while also leaving operators curious as to what new priorities will manifest as MSHA moves forward. It is imperative that the mining industry monitor MSHA as the policies and tone of the Trump administration unfold.
Conn Maciel Carey’s complimentary 2018 MSHA Webinar Series, hosted by the firm’s national MSHA Practice Group, is designed to give attendees the tools to fully prepare for mining operations for forthcoming initiatives, rulemaking and enforcement for 2018 and beyond.
