You Ought to Know the Difference!


RR090519 MSHASept. 5, 2019 – MSHA apparently doesn't know the difference between cement and concrete. The agency issued a preliminary fatality report that states, "On August 20, 2019, at approximately 8:00 a.m., a miner was fatally injured when he sustained traumatic injuries from a 40-ft. fall down a shaft to the cement floor below. The victim was working with another miner unloading a refuse kettle attached to an electric hoist when he went over the unguarded edge of the shaft." I brought the error to their attention. They didn't bother to fix it. How can you expect the people you regulate to pay attention to detail if you don't do it yourself?
