MSHA Regulating by Administrative Fiat? Yes!
MSHA’s Program Information Bulletins (PIBs), Program Information Letters (PILs), and other “in house” regulatory tools are crafted by MSHA, and served to the regulated community outside of the Notice and Comment Rulemaking procedure. Often, the communications present substantive changes in the way regulations are enforced by MSHA.
Dinsmore attorneys Jason Nutzman, Max Corley and Carol Marunich presented the third discussion in our complimentary 2012 Fall Mine Safety and Health webinar series and discussed PIBs, PILs, and other MSHA administrative initiatives that operators should be prepared for as 2012 comes to a close.
This webinar was a must see for both coal and metal/nonmetal operators and their safety directors and foreman.
