MSHA 2019 in Review and 2020 Forecast
Presented by Nicholas W. Scala

As we move into 2020, the last year of the Trump Administration’s first term, a new MSHA is taking form. The Agency has undergone, and continues to undergo, significant changes with its personnel, structure, and priorities. In this webinar, we will examine MSHA’s 2019 with respect to enforcement, rulemaking, and the One MSHA “blurring” of the Coal and Metal/Nonmetal divisions. We will also explore the potential areas of emphasis for the upcoming year and outline several items mine operators and independent contractors should monitor during 2020.

During this webinar, participants will learn about:

• 2019 MSHA enforcement trends and statistics;
• The status of existing and new MSAH enforcement initiatives;
• Review of One MSHA Blurring of the Coal and Metal/Nonmetal enforcement divisions; and
• Status of M/NM Workplace Exam, Powered Haulage, and Respirable Quartz rulemaking.
