Mine Safety and Health Administration

30 CFR Part 72

RIN 1219-AB18

Determination of Concentration of Respirable Coal Mine Dust; Correction

AGENCY: Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), Labor.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.


SUMMARY: This document corrects typographical errors which appeared in the preamble to the joint proposed rule that announced that the Secretary of Labor and the Secretary of Health and Human Services (the Secretaries) would find in accordance with sections 101 (30 U.S.C. 811) and 202(f)(2) (30 U.S.C. 842(f)(2)) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 that the average concentration of respirable dust to which each miner in the active workings of a coal mine is exposed can be accurately measured over a single shift. No corrections are being made to the regulatory text.

The joint proposal published in the Federal Register on July 7, 2000, would rescind a previous 1972 finding by the Secretaries on the validity of such single-shift sampling.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carol J. Jones, Director, Office of Standards, Regulations, and Variances, MSHA; 703-235-1910.
