MSHA Safety Compliance And Enforcement

Whether you are a miner, work in human resources, work in management or are the owner of a mine, you know how common it is to see Mine Safety and Health Administration inspectors on site.

Pre-inspection intervention in matters of safety and health can be the key in preventing or reducing MSHA fines and citations. However, when facing expensive enforcement actions, it is important to work with attorneys who know the industry, regulations and federal and state agencies. For more than 30 years, our lawyers at Williams, Kilpatrick & True, PLLC, have been trusted by the industry to protect its rights and interests.
