By |  December 28, 2016

msha-logoThe Mine Safety & Health Administration (MSHA) issued 152 citations and five orders during special impact inspections conducted at 10 coal mines and seven metal and nonmetal mines in November 2016.

The inspections were conducted at mines in Alabama, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Utah, Virginia and West Virginia.

The agency began conducting the inspections in April 2010 at mines that merit increased agency attention and enforcement due to their poor compliance history or particular compliance concerns. According to MSHA, since then, its inspectors have conducted 1,255 impact inspections and issued 17,123 citations, 1,329 orders and 62 safeguards.
