Tell MSHA To Delay Their New Workplace Exam Rule

Tomorrow (April 25th) is the last day to let MSHA know that you want their disastrous new workplace exam rule delayed.

You can submit your comment right here.

MSHA Safety Enforcement Update

MSHA has been seeking comments on its proposal to delay the effective date of the metal/non‑metal workplace exam rule “to provide stakeholders training and compliance assistance.”

As Mine Industry Attorney (and friend of MSC) Willa Perlmutter puts it:

It’s an odd basis for saying they want to extend the rule, since the need for stakeholder training and compliance assistance was surely contemplated when the final rule was published back in January.  This leads me to think that MSHA is considering whether to pull (or at least, to radically amend) the rule altogether.

Editing or Updating MSHA Trainee Info

In order to get the most out of Mine Safety Center’s automatic certificate features, you need to complete information afor each trainee profile, including:

  1. Full name as it appears on a trainee’s birth certificate including middle name (not just an initial) and any suffixes (Jr. etc.) if applicable
