Minners’ Safety

I haven’t been blogging lately because I injured my back at work.  Not a serious injury, just a back sprain.  I’ll blog more on that latter.  In the mean time, some workplace safety issues I just read up on regarding miners.  UPS has a lot of safety issues itself and I should know since I’m the union representative on the local safety committee.  More on all of that latter though:

The Mine Safety and Health Administration’s (MSHA’s) foot-dragging on developing new mine safety rules mandated by the 2006 MINER Act and other legislation has caught up with it. Now, the agency is begging for help.

    Two of those MSHA regulation writers run private business from the office, and one spends more than half of the year away on “training” and “developmental details” which is another way of saying he travels around at tax payer expense and gets nice rental cars so he can go sight-seeing in style. The ones who speak up for mine safety and health, i.e., silicosis, asbestos, are made to regret it. MSHA don’t want to write any rules and they won’t write any, no matter how many people get detailed there.
