By |  December 4, 2013

Underground safety is the subject of an upcoming seminar sponsored by the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) and presented by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

The 18th Annual Underground Stone Safety Seminar will be held Dec. 11 in Louisville, Ky. Regulatory developments will be included among the topics discussed, as well as the impact on the underground aggregates industry.

The seminar will include presentations on mine rescue and annual refresher training strategies. Assistant deputy manager for MSHA’s southeast district, Doniece Schlick, will be among the presenters.

An Early Bird Workshop on Dec. 10 will address the subject of using a real-time diesel particulate monitor in limestone mines. The afternoon session features updates from MSHA on ground control practices and DPM controls as well as conveyor safety and laser techniques for ground control.
