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.

He said the dings and alarms made it easier to put the seat belt on.” Photo courtesy of the NSSGA
