MSHA’s Quarterly Training Call is scheduled for Monday, April 30 at 1 p.m. ET.

Assistant Secretary David G. Zatezalo will open the call with remarks and will be available for questions at the close.This call will focus on powered haulage safety – a priority issue for MSHA. We have seen far too many miners injured and killed in recent accidents that could have been prevented by following proper safety procedures. Specifically, we will emphasize safety regarding vehicle collisions, seat belt usage and working around conveyor belts. During the call, safety experts will describe recent accidents involving these problem areas as well as technological solutions that encourage safe behavior.

MSHA recently asked for stakeholder feedback on powered haulage safety and received dozens of suggestions and best practices. Those will be discussed on this call. There will also be time for questions and comments.

RSVP for the call here. Please RSVP by April 27, 2018.
