MSHA Posts News Release on Diesels

MSHA has now posted its news release on the latest revision of the metal/nonmetal diesel particulate rule. The rule went on open file Friday and was published Monday in the Federal Register; the Steelworkers criticized the revisions of the 2001 rule, which were prompted by an industry lawsuit. (See previous posts, Saturday and yesterday.)

"The health and safety of workers is a top priority of this Administration, and this is one more way to demonstrate that commitment," said David G. Dye, acting assistant secretary of labor for mine safety and health.
