Model programs should be designed to prevent injuries and illnesses, comply with the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act, and include participation from everyone -- including executives, workers and contractors, MSHA said.

The meetings are scheduled to take place in Arlington, VA; Pittsburgh; and Sacramento, CA. The deadline for comments is Dec. 17.
