The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) defines an independent contractor as “any person, partnership, corporation, subsidiary of a corporation, firm, association or other organization that contracts to perform services or construction at a mine.” Training requirements that entail contractors working on a mine site fall under Part 46 of MSHA’s federal regulations.

In this webinar Kristin White, partner at Fisher Phillips, will discuss:

  • the risks and obligations for a contractor working on a mine site;
  • managing contractors on a mine site for operators;
  • best practices for operators and contractors working together on mine sites.
