Title: 7th Annual Instructor Training Seminar /Mine Safety and Health Law School

Program: Mine Safety

Course Description: All mine supervisors and managers, from the company president to front line supervisors and agents, must have a thorough understanding of MSHA Rules and Regulations in order to instill in their co-workers a culture where SAFETY is a VALUE. Many supervisors enter “panic mode” the minute the MSHA inspector arrives. If you don’t have a sound working knowledge of the Act and 30 CFR, you should at least have the resources readily available for reference, and know how to use them. Failure to do so could result in citations or orders with huge fines, or even imprisonment. Owners, operators, contractors, and supervisory personnel involved in the mining industry must fully understand both Federal and State mine safety laws. It is the purpose of this school to educate the attendee in the pertinent aspects of the current statutes and recent changes. These include the 2006 Congressional Amendment to the Mine Act: “Miner Act”, Part 50 Immediate Notification Final Rule, Part 100 Final Penalty Rule, Rules To Live By 3 implementation effective April 1, 2012, new program policy procedures, bulletins, and letters to include informal contestment changes effective in August 2013. Compliance with legal requirements is a basic component of any effective safety and health program.
