MSHA Announces New Initiative Targeting Training
With an increase in fatalities and injuries in 2022, MSHA has announced a new safety campaign, titled, "Take Time, Save Lives." The campaign highlights the resources available which employers can use in their training curriculum. These resources include the following topics:
Powered haulage safety
Roof and rib falls
Fire suppression and prevention
As with any MSHA initiative, we can expect this campaign will be on inspectors' minds when they visit your sites. Expect a renewed focus on training records, including task training, annual refresher training, and site-specific hazard awareness training.
