Title 30 published on 06-Jun-2018 04:01
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 30 CFR Part 90 after this date.
The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is amending its published regulations that include the Agency's addresses. MSHA relocated its Headquarters offices and also will discontinue renting the Post Office boxes it uses for mail delivery to the Pittsburgh Safety and Health Technology Center and Respirable Dust Processing Laboratory. In addition, MSHA is amending the incorporation by reference language in some of its regulations to include current addresses, telephone numbers, and internet addresses.
The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is announcing that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved the information requirements contained in the final rule on Lowering Miners' Exposure to Coal Mine Dust, Including Continuous Personal Dust Monitors published in the Federal Register May 1, 2014, under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520). The OMB Control Number is 1219-0152.
The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is revising the Agency's existing standards on miners' occupational exposure to respirable coal mine dust in order to: Lower the existing exposure limits; provide for full-shift sampling; redefine the term “normal production shift”; and add reexamination and decertification requirements for persons certified to sample for dust, and maintain and calibrate sampling devices. In addition, the rule provides for single shift compliance sampling by MSHA inspectors, establishes sampling requirements for mine operators' use of the Continuous Personal Dust Monitor (CPDM), requires operator corrective action on a single, full-shift operator sample, changes the averaging method to determine compliance on operator samples, and expands requirements for medical surveillance of coal miners. Chronic exposure to respirable coal mine dust causes lung diseases that can lead to permanent disability and death. The final rule will greatly improve health protections for coal miners by reducing their occupational exposure to respirable coal mine dust and by lowering the risk that they will suffer material impairment of health or functional capacity over their working lives.
