    Abstract

        "Legal and Ethical Considerations for Mine Safety Professionals"

    Environmental, health, and safety professionals (EHS) have responsibility for many activities, including: management of regulatory and proactive programs; performing audits; and training employees and contractors. These activities also carry significant personal and corporate legal liability exposure, both from MSHA (civil and criminal) and in tort actions arising from negligent training, inspections and supervision. In addition, unethical activities or allegations can cost EHS professionals their hard-earned certifications.

     

    This presentation will address:

    • The legal and ethical considerations for EHS professionals
    • Strategies for effective management of liability exposures
    • Proactive solutions

    Among other things, you will receive detailed instructions on legal privilege issues, preparation of accident reports, management of inspections, OSHA/MSHA conferences, and more.
