PROACTIVE ASSISTANCE WITH COMPLIANCE
MSHA and other safety regulations are complex, and the assistance of a MSHA lawyer and other professionals is often necessary. We can assist clients who have questions about their practices and whether they are in compliance with regulations. We strongly encourage such proactive work, as it can save companies significant expense.
Once a citation is issued, the cited company or operator can either accept it or start an administrative process to discuss and contest it. The timely filing of a notice of contest starts an administrative process that may culminate in a trial before an administrative law judge.
