The growing number of high profile mining accidents worldwide, makes a database of compliant contractors and suppliers more valuable to mine operators than ever before. Obvious concerns to ensure the safety and well-being of those on site have taken on greater urgency as government entities such as MSHA institute stiff fines for anyone operating out of compliance. And MSHA has raised the bar in recent years with Criminal Penalties.
In their own words: “The Mine Act provides for criminal sanctions against mine operators who willfully violate safety and health standards. MSHA initially investigates possible willful violations; if evidence of such a violation is found, the agency turns its findings over to the Justice Department for prosecution.”
