Achieving product compliance is hard with evolving technology & expanding regulations

Regulation for mine safety continues to evolve as new mining methods, technology, and equipment are developed. Manufacturers & suppliers are challenged to ensure their equipment complies with government safety standards demonstrating that their equipment is safe and fit for use in coal & gassy underground mines.

With mine safety being a top priority for the US Department of Labor, federal regulations require mining products that are destined for use in coal & gassy underground mines, be either approved or certified to MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration) standards or non-MSHA Product Safety Standards when deemed equivalent to the applicable product approval requirements by MSHA.

This webinar will give you an in-depth look at compliance to mandatory safety and health standards enforced by MSHA to eliminate fatal accidents, reduce the frequency and severity of nonfatal accidents, minimize health hazards, and to promote improved safety and health conditions in the nation's mines as it applies to approval of your products.
