we understand the complications of the mine industry and MSHA.
It takes specialized knowledge and skill to navigate the Federal Mine Safety and Health Administration's (MSHA) unique enforcement and penalization policies. Over recent years, MSHA has increased their enforcement of the Mine Act and challenged mine companies to become safer. Consequently, more citations are being issued with increasingly higher fines. Even minor citation could significantly impact a mine company’s ability to bid and receive jobs. Even independent contractors, not normally subject to MSHA regulations, can find themselves in violation of the Mine Act while subcontracting for a mining company and be fined as well.
At DeAtley Law, we have extensive background in the mining industry and understand the concerns of mines companies.
