    MSHA announces results of April impact inspections

    May 31, 2011

    The results of the April 2011 MSHA “impact” inspections have been announced, resulting in a total of 161 citations and orders being issued against eight different coal mining operations. All cited mines were in the eastern region of the US, including Shoemaker and Randolph in West Virginia, the No. 2 and #68 mines in Kentucky, as well as one mine in each of Pennsylvania, Virginia, Tennessee and Alabama.

    Among the worst offenders in the sweep were the Vision Coal’s No. 2 mine, which received 37 citations and orders that documented (among other things) that Vision wasn’t properly drilling bore holes to test for methane, and that it was creating a risk of a collapse by not following its ceiling reinforcement plan. Inman Energy’s Randolph mine received 25 citations, 21 of which were the most serious “S&S” citations indicating an immediate danger to the mining crew. The impact inspections grew out of an increased enforcement push by MSHA after the explosion at the Upper Big Branch Mine. Impact inspections target mines that have a history of violations.

    Massey Cited by U.S. for ‘Outrageous’ Mine Safety Violations

    May 4, 2011

    Massey Energy, owner of the Upper Big Branch Mine whose explosion killed 29 miners a year ago, was cited in April for dozens of safety violations at its Randolph Mine in Boone County West Virginia. Inspectors were flabbergasted by the conditions they found in their inspection, with Joseph Main, head of the Mining Safety and Health Administration, describing them as “nothing short of outrageous”.

    During the inspection miners found so much coal dust the miners were actually coated in the dust and surrounded by a cloud of it, exposing them to risks of explosion as well as black lung disease. Additionally, mining machines were being run without adequate air supply and had insufficient water to surpress the dust, and in places there was a lack of air curtains necessary to keep a safe flow of air throughout the mine. Massey, based in Richmond, Virginia, disciplined several individuals after the inspection, and “will take all actions necessary to ensure that our operations comply with the letter of the law,” according to General Counsel Shane Harvey.
