MSHA, OSHA plan to release new rules by year end

The Mine Safety and Health Administration is planning the release of two final rules this year, while the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has plans to release eight new rules, all by years end. Mine operators have been critical of some of these proposed changes for fear that fines will be higher. MSHA plans to release a final rule addressing fees for testing, evaluating, and approving mining products this August.
