Safety is an essential and critically important attribute of any mining operation. All of CSSGA’s producer members are focused on worker safety with a safe and well managed plant operation. This Committee has a strong working relationship with numerous agencies including: MSHA (Mine Safety and Health Administration), OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), and CDOT (Colorado Department of Transportation). In 2000 the Committee created the MSHA (Part 46) New Miner Training CD. This excellent instructional video is in its third edition and it continues to receive national recognition from MSHA and other industry associations.
The Safety Committee meets on the third Tuesday of the month from 11:30 to 1:00.
