  • MSHA announces results of January 2011 impact and regularly scheduled inspections

    February 17, 2011

    MSHA has announced the results of the January 2011 impact inspections. The inspections, which are the result of stepped-up enforcement of safety as a result of the Upper Big Branch disaster in April 2010, issued a total of 208 citations and seven orders to the fifteen coal mines on the list.

    MSHA was especially critical of the conditions it found in the RB 12 Mine controlled by Manalapan Mining. Inspectors found three defective gas detectors, two gas detectors that were turned off and had dead batteries, and one gas detector that was used for a pre-shift inspection was completely turned off during the inspection (when turned on it was found to be defective). Inspectors also found several electrocution hazards, that ribs and supports were not in proper condition creating a roof-collapse risk, and coal dust along a conveyor had accumulated causing an explosion risk. RB-12 was issued a total of 27 citations and orders; two other Manalapan mines were inspected resulted in 21 citations and 11 citations respectively.

    MSHA Press Release: 550 violations cited in latest ‘impact inspections’

    The Mining Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) announced that as a result of their “special impact” inspections, initiated in the wake of the Upper Big Branch Mine explosion, resulted in a total of 341 violations in their inspection of 15 coal mines. The rest of the violations occurred in 15 metal/non-metal mines.

    Mines were targeted based on their history of prior violations. Included were the Advantage Number 1 mine in Kentucky, which was issued 51 violations. Another was the Straight Creek #1 Mine (also in Kentucky), which was issued 39 violations. A later, regularly-scheduled inspection on October 14 found that many of the conditions had not changed, and the mine was closed until the problems were corrected.

    The full list of coal mines cited is
