Implementation of the Workplace Examination Rule – Adele Abrams

Presentation Abstract MSHA’s revised workplace examination rule took effect in June 2018, and significantly changed inspection and documentation liability for mine operators, EHS managers, and supervisors. This program will address the basics of the new rule for metal/nonmetal mines, how it interfaces with other MSHA standards such as task training, barricades, and ground inspections, and the new documentation requirements. The program will also address the personal liability of examiners, contractor inspection requirements, case law developments, and best practices for conducting meaningful examinations.
