Tomorrow, Tuesday, the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions is conducting a hearing on “Current Mine Safety Disasters: Issues and Challenges.”

It begins at 10:00 am, EST.

Here’s the list of witnesses:

Panel 1:

  • Kevin Stricklin, (Administration for Coal Mine Safety & Health, MSHA) Arlington
  • Dr. Jeffrey Kohler (Assoc. Director for Mine Safety & Health Research) Pittsburgh.
  • Joseph Osterman, (Managing Director, NTSB) D.C.

Panel 2:

The Senate Committee will either have a link on their page to listen and watch or C-SPAN3, hopefully.

    Do you mean MSHA?

    OSHA doesn’t cover mining.
