Background Section 101(c) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act) allows the mine operator or representative of miners to file a petition to modify the application of any mandatory safety standard to a coal or other mine if the Secretary of Labor determines that: 1. An alternative method of achieving the result of such standard exists which will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded the miners of such mine by such standard; or 2. That the application of such standard to such mine will result in a PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 95199 diminution of safety to the miners in such mine. In addition, the regulations at 30 CFR 44.10 and 44.11 establish the requirements and procedures for filing petitions for modification. II. Petitions for Modification Docket Number: M–2016–008–M. Petitioner: Martin Marietta Materials, Inc., 11405 N. Pennsylvania St., Suite 250, Carmel, Indiana 46032. Mine: Kokomo Mine, MSHA I.D. No. 12–02105, located in Howard County, Indiana. Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 49.2(c) (Availability of mine rescue teams). Modification Request: The petitioner requests a modification of the existing standard for the Martin Marietta, Indiana District Mine Rescue Team stationed at the Kokomo Mine, to use two additional firefighters from the Kokomo Fire Department located in Howard County, Indiana. The two firefighters are in addition to the proposed team of five experienced miners from the Kokomo mine, North Indianapolis mine, Noblesville Stone mine and Kentucky Avenue mine. The petitioner states that: (1) The firefighters are in close proximity to the mine, and will receive the required MSHA training. (2) The members of the fire department have had extensive training in firefighting, evacuation and rescue. (3) The additional firefighters will receive underground training and become familiar with the mines where they will be providing mine rescue service. The team will have more rescue training than existing 30 CFR 49.8 requires and will train underground with apparatus at each mine where they provide a service. The petitioner asserts that the alternative method will at all times provide the same measure of protection as the existing standard.
