DOL/MSHA RIN: 1219-AB63 Publication ID: Fall 2008
Title: Criteria for Proposed Assessment for Civil Penalties
Abstract: MSHA is proposing to amend its civil penalty regulations to simplify the gravity and negligence criteria of part 100. This proposal would, in addition, require changes to MSHA Form 7000-3 which is the form used by inspectors to record the facts and criteria for each individual mine safety and health violation that is found at a mine. The proposal would promote consistency in the evaluation of health and safety violations.
