MSHA’s Mike Davis to address Fly-In attendees
The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) says it is concerned that improvements in the aggregates industry safety and health record is not being acknowledged by the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), and that the agency is more interested in undue enforcement. According to the NSSGA’s eDigest & Washington Watch, producers are frustrated with inappropriate enforcement that forces scarce producer resources toward citation defense rather than toward safety and health improvements.
Mike Davis, deputy assistant secretary for Operations of MSHA, accepted NSSGA’s invitation to address and visit with “Aggregates in Action” fly-in attendees at 4 p.m. on Sept. 22 in Washington, D.C. The NSSGA is urging members and state association executives to attend the fly-in and the special meeting with Davis so that aggregates industry voices can be heard.
