Rogers Group veteran to serve as MSHA advisor

By |  November 21, 2017

Aggregate industry veteran Ed Elliott joined the Mine Safety & Health Administration (MSHA) as a senior advisor, according to the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA).

With a 30-year career in the aggregate industry, recently working as director of safety and health for Rogers Group Inc., Elliott brings knowledge of safety at quarries and pits.

“Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta wants us to reach out and engage with stakeholders to improve overall safety and health for miners,” Elliott says. “There are a lot of positive things being done in the metal and nonmetal industry that I think can benefit how we approach safety and health.”

Elliott is a past recipient of the James M. Christie Safety Professional of the Year Award and previously chaired NSSGA’s Safety Committee
