NSSGA to oppose final rule on workplace exams
Published by Rebecca Bowden,
MSHA has issued a final workplace exams rule today, following months of comments and opposition from member companies, including the NSSGA.

The NSSGA has not had the opportunity to review the entire finalised rule, though it is pleased that the proposal did not seek to redefine the term ‘competent person’ conducting the exams. Thousands of operators have improved safety by empowering all employees to be guardians of workplace safety – the proposed rule would have limited this trend.
