MSHA issuing more citations to mines

Coal mine operators in West Virginia and other states have been under increased scrutiny from the Mine Safety and Health Administration in 2016. The agency handed out 161 citations to U.S. mine operators in July, a 41 percent increase from the prior month when mine operators received 114 citations. The higher citation rate is part of MSHA's impact inspection campaign that was launched in April 2010 in an effort to prevent miner's injuries and fatalities.
