The average mine operator now spends over $20,000 per year on citations and penalties. In this must-attend conference – Alternative Case Resolution Initiative (ACRI) – learn how to reduce or eliminate fines with the added benefit of improved safety conditions. Within the context of increasing citations, this workshop will prepare you to handle Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) inspectors and their findings.

This two-and-a-half-day workshop includes breakfast and lunch and will cover:

  • Legal and procedural processes of field inspections
  • The anatomy of a citation and how and why to challenge it
  • Necessary skills for mine operators and representatives to challenge an MSHA citation
