MSHA Releases Results of June 2015 Impact Inspections

MSHA has released the results of its June 2015 special impact inspections. The inspections were conducted last month at ten coal mines and five metal and non metal mines. 139 citations, three orders and one safeguard were issued to operators. Since April 2010, MSHA has conducted 966 special impact inspections and issued 14,561 citations, 1,250 orders and 57 safeguards. Assistant Secretary of Labor for Mine Safety and Health, Joe Main, touted improvements in this latest round of inspections, but indicated that MSHA will continue with this enforcement initiative. “Recent impact inspections have resulted in fewer citations and orders. While this is a sign of improved industry compliance with the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, there are still mines that require these specially targeted inspections.”
