MSHA reopens public comment period for diesel exhaust exposure

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has confirmed it will reopen the public comment period until the 26 March 2019 regarding the Agency’s Request for Information (RFI) on Exposure of Underground Miners to Diesel Exhaust. It follows additional requests from stakeholders to provide more time to share input and data to help protect the health and safety of America’s miners.

MSHA, on 8 June 2016, published a RFI seeking information and data on the effectiveness of the Agency’s existing standards and policy guidance on controlling miners’ exposure to diesel exhaust to preserve miners’ health. The RFI’s comment period closed on 30 Nov 2016 and was then reopened on 9 January 2018, following a collaboration at a partnership meeting in December 2016.
