DOL/MSHA RIN: 1219-AB91 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Safety Program for Surface Mobile Equipment 

MSHA will issue a proposed rule to establish a written safety program for mobile equipment and powered haulage equipment (except belt conveyors) used at surface mines and surface areas of underground mines. Under this proposal, mine operators would be required to assess hazards and risks and identify actions to reduce accidents related to surface mobile equipment. The operators would have flexibility to develop and implement a safety program that would work best for their mining conditions and operations. This proposed rule is to reduce fatal and nonfatal injuries involving surface mobile equipment used at mines and to improve miner safety and health.
