As a result of high profile accidents around the country involving structural failures, MSHA has placed a greater emphasis in its inspections on evaluating the structural integrity of everything from silos, bins, buildings,and conveyors. These evaluation tend to follow a familiar pattern beginning with general observations and concerns by the inspector to detailed, comprehensive analyses by MSHA Technical Support engineers. These issues can be difficult to resolve and often include allegations of unwarrantable failure and failure to timely abate. This presentation will discuss recent cases and offer some insight into how to effectively navigate the pitfalls that can arise.
