DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Mine Safety and Health Administration 30 CFR Part 75 RIN 1219–AB75 Examinations of Work Areas in Underground Coal Mines for Violations of Mandatory Health or Safety Standards Mine Safety and Health Administration, Labor. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is revising its requirements for preshift, supplemental, on-shift, and weekly examinations of underground coal mines to require operators to identify violations of health or safety standards related to ventilation, methane, roof control, combustible materials, rock dust, other safeguards, and guarding, as listed in the final rule. Violations of these standards create unsafe conditions for underground coal miners. The final rule also requires that the mine operator record and correct violations of the nine safety and health standards found during these examinations. It also requires that the operator review with mine examiners on a quarterly basis all citations and orders issued in areas where preshift, supplemental, on-shift, and weekly examinations are required. The final rule will increase the identification and correction of unsafe conditions in mines earlier, and improve protection for miners in underground coal mines. DATES: Effective date: August 6, 2012. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: George F.

Purpose of the Regulatory Action Effective preshift, supplemental, onshift, and weekly examinations are the first line of defense to protect miners working in underground coal mines. After analyzing the Agency’s accident reports and enforcement data for underground coal mines covering a 5-year period, MSHA determined that the same types of violations of health or safety standards are found by MSHA inspectors in underground coal mines every year and that these violations present some of the most unsafe conditions for coal miners. These repeated violations expose miners to unnecessary safety and health risks that should be found and corrected by mine operators. The final rule will increase the identification and correction of unsafe conditions in mines earlier, removing many of the conditions that could lead to danger, and improve protection for miners in underground coal mines.
