Lax safety oversight can carry devastating consequences for mining companies, both in terms of injuries suffered and lives lost, as well as the hidden costs of associated with such events. That’s why Intelex has prepared a special webinar on three key rules for improving mine safety performance.
Join us for Three Essential Rules for Cultivating a Culture of Mine Safety as we expand on insights gleaned from Joe Main, head of the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), who has analyzed hundreds of mine disasters, including 2010’s devastating Upper Big Branch Mine explosion, America’s worst mining accident in nearly half a century.
“Mine safety is one of the biggest opportunities for improvement in U.S. health and safety and it’s really our responsibility to discover how we can do things better,” says Eric Tchao, host of Thursday’s webinar. “Joe Main’s years of insight into what went wrong in some of America’s biggest mining accidents ought to be applied proactively to today’s mining operations to minimize the possibility of future mining disasters.”
In this webinar Tchao will discuss how to end the cycle of intensity and complacency in mine safety management, Main’s three critical lessons for enhancing mine safety, the essential tools to ensure sustained, comprehensive compliance with federal mine safety regulations and more.
