55 Safety Seminars in MSHA's Spring Campaign
The Mine Safety and Health Administration has scheduled 55 free mine safety seminars as part of this year's "Spring Thaw" campaign. The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association is working with MSHA on these events, which address hazards associated with the start of warmer weather. The seminars do not require advance registration.
"Warmer weather brings about changes for the mining industry, and the purpose of these seminars is to assist miners and mine operators in avoiding weather-related hazards," said Richard E. Stickler, assistant secretary of labor for mine safety and health. "MSHA is working closely with the stone, sand, and gravel industries to help keep workers safe on the job."
MSHA personnel and mining companies' safety and health professionals are the presenters. For a complete schedule, visit www.msha.gov and click on the District Pages link.
