MSHA Assistant Secretary David Zatezalo addressed seat belt safety earlier this year at the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association’s Annual Convention, stating that it is very difficult to enforce. Says Zatezalo: “I would tell you from my own experience that my father would never wear a seat belt. Toward the end of his life I bought him a car and he started wearing a seat belt. He said the dings and alarms made it easier to put the seat belt on.” Photo courtesy of the NSSGA
