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

  • Lockout/tagout

  • Fatality updates

  • Coronavirus 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.
