During the call, our safety experts will describe recent accidents involving these problem areas as well as technological solutions that encourage safe behavior.
We also want to hear from you. Tell us in advance about effective strategies and systems that are being used by operators, miners, trainers and safety consultants. We will feature your ideas on a webpage and in materials to be distributed before the call. We may even ask you to join a quick discussion on the call.
We chose these priority areas because we have seen far too many preventable injuries and fatalities associated with them.
Please send your comments and ideas to Wycinsky.David@DOL.gov.
We will be in touch soon with more information about the call. As always, thank you for your interest in promoting mine safety and health.
