The Art of Air Sampling - Aggregates Manager

    30 August 2009

    When the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) conducts air sampling, the results for the site can include short-term abatement problems as well as long-term liability implications. Employees, and even their family members, can sometimes use those results to support claims for disability and negligence against operators. Often times, there are ways to reduce this potential liability at the initial sampling stage, when agencies and the laboratories they use have been known to make significant mistakes.
