On July 18, 2018, Nick Scala of Conn Maciel Carey’s national MSHA Practice, presented a webinar which covered a MSHA Enforcement Update and Legal Developments.

As we pass the midpoint of 2018, it is important to take a moment to look back on the enforcement trends developed during the previous six months. It is also important that operators don’t lose sight of Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission decisions which affect MSHA’s interpretation and enforcement of the nation’s mines. This webinar will review the enforcement trends and MSHA initiatives to date in 2018, as well as the resulting FMSHRC decisions from industry contest. Operators and contractors will be able to put this information into effect for compliance and contest purposes.

During this webinar, participants learned about:

  • MSHA enforcement trends and initiatives of 2018;

  • The effects of recent FMSHRC decisions on MSHA enforcement and compliance; and

  • Strategies to prepare operations to comply with the changing enforcement tactics and interpretations.

Here is a link to a recording of the webinar with slides and audio. This was the fourth webinar event in the 2018 Conn Maciel Carey MSHA Webinar Series.
