Section 103(a) of the Mine Act authorizes MSHA to conduct frequent inspections and investigations without advance notice. MSHA’s interpretation of the prohibition against advance notice is a hot button enforcement issue in the coal and non metal sectors — and it's almost certain to cause controversy in the near future. 

Dinsmore attorneys Bob Beatty and Jason Nutzman presented a complimentary 60-minute webinar that broke down MSHA’s evolving interpretation of section 103(a), the current state of Commission case law on this important issue, and MSHA’s current policy viewpoint.

This was a must-see information for coal, metal and non-metal mine operators, and their safety and management staff.
