MSHA Announces Results of October Impact Inspections

Federal inspectors issued 127 citations during special impact inspections conducted at 12 coal mines in October.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Mine Safety and Health Administration announced that federal inspectors issued 127 citations and six orders during special impacts inspections conducted at 12 coal mines in October 2014.

According to its news release, the monthly inspections involve mines that merit increased agency attention and enforcement due to their poor compliance history or particular compliance concerns. This began in force in April 2010 after the explosion at the Upper Big Branch Mine in West Virginia.

Since that explosion, MSHA has conducted 835 impact inspections and issued 13,267 citations, 1,200 orders, and 55 safeguards.
