NSSGA to address members’ safety commitment with MSHA

By |  May 10, 2012

NSSGA will have high-level discussions with the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration’s (MSHA) Joe Main over the next few weeks about issues tied to worker safety and health and compliance.

An official meeting is planned for June 6 in Alexandria, Va. That meeting will be preceded by a May 14 meeting involving MSHA’s Joe Main, NSSGA President Joy Pinniger and Vice President for Safety Services Joseph Casper.

NSSGA says it is approaching the meetings as opportunities to build on topics that have not been addressed in past meetings. Among the topics to be addressed are NSSGA members’ demonstrated commitment to safety and health; the distinction between aggregates and other MSHA stakeholders; concerns over inadequate training of inspectors, as well as inspector inconsistency; the failure or inability of inspectors to consider the issue of behavior when evaluating hazards; and the importance of good compliance assistance.
