PowerPoint® Presentations from
2002 Compliance Assistance Workshops on Diesel Rule

MSHA conducted a series of outreach seminars around the nation during September and October 2002 to assist metal and nonmetal underground mine operators in complying with regulations addressing the use of diesel powered equipment. The seminars addressed enforcement issues and answered questions about provisions of the rule including compliance determination, the interim concentration limit, maintenance, environmental monitoring and recordkeeping. A less structured workshop on diesel particulate matter (DPM) controls and sampling was held in the afternoon. These are the presentations that were given.
