  • 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.
