ATTENTION VISITORS:

This site is free and open for all to visit, however we restrict submissions to members of supporting associations listed in the masthead. All comments will be monitored for content. We encourage members to submit citations of high interest. Those might include unusual and challenging citations to citations which might indicate a new MSHA initiative. Citations that assess high penalties as well as citations for conditions not cited before would also be of interest.
