MSHA releases three information bulletins


The Mine Safety and Health Administration last week issued several program information bulletins.

One bulletin, reissued on July 8, provides a training guide and sample lesson plan for complying with miner training regulations for diesel particulate matter.

Another bulletin contains guidance on fall protection consisting of safety belts, lines and life jackets for people working on barges at river loading facilities where coal is mined.

A July 13 bulletin addresses hazards related to rubber-tired and track-mounted excavators at surface coal and metal and nonmetal mines.
