ASSE Comments on MSHA PoV Proposed Rule

Posted in on Mon, Apr 18, 2011

ASSE submitted comments on the Mine Safety and Health Administration’s Proposed Rule Pattern of Violation (PoV) intended to strengthen MSHA’s ability to find that a mine has a recurring pattern of violations requiring heightened oversight by MSHA.  The comment supported the development of POV criteria, adding transparencyto the process, and expanding adjudicated enforcement actions that can be used in a POV determination.  But ASSE opposed including enforcement actions that have not reached final action and any requirement that MSHA approve a mine’s safety and health program.  The Proposed Rule and other information can be found at MSHA’s POV Single Source Page.
