MSHA Alerts Coal Mine Operators to Submit SCSR Inventories

Kevin Stricklin, MSHA's administrator for Coal Mine Safety and Health, and Mark Skiles, director of Technical Support for the agency, are the signers on a Program Information Bulletin issued yesterday that alerts coal mine operators to submit a complete inventory of their Self-Contained Self-Rescuer units, as the emergency mine evacuation rule enacted in December 2006 requires. Approved forms for submitting the inventory are now available, the bulletin says.

MSHA said coal mine operators that have not already submitted an inventory should use the forms to submit theirs as soon as possible. "Coal mine safety and health inspectors will check for inventory reporting compliance during their next quarterly inspection," the bulletin says. "If noncompliance is identified, appropriate enforcement action will be taken at that time.

The bulletin is directed to operators of underground coal mines, independent contractors, miners' representatives, MSHA enforcement personnel, state mining agencies, and other interested parties.
