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.
