The Mine Safety Health Administration (MSHA) Alternative Case Resolution Initiative (ACRI) is a program in which ACRI-trained, non-attorney MSHA specialists resolve or try selected enforcement disputes with mine operators arising from citations under the Mine Act. ACRI generally applies to cases in which the aggregate penalty does not exceed $2500, and where no disabling or fatal injuries or high negligence are involved.
This special ACRI workshop will provide mine operators and their representatives with the skills necessary to participate in the ACRI process without outside legal representation. Key strategies can avoid costly citations and reduce your company’s legal and financial liability. Our industry experts will teach you how to deal with MSHA from the moment the field inspectors arrive at your site, through the course of their inspection and after any citations are issued. Leading mining attorney Mark Savit, Senior Counsel at Husch Blackwell LLP who began his career at the Department of the Interior where he headed the special investigation unit of the Mining Enforcement and Safety Administration, will provide key insights into the legal aspects of MSHA enforcement and ways in which your company can reduce citations and penalties.
