30 CFR Part 50 What is Part 50? Part 50 regulations require operators and contractors to investigate mine accidents and injuries and report to MSHA those which meet the described reporting criteria. The regulations also require operators and contractors to report employment data.

Why Do We Have to Report? This information is required so that MSHA may evaluate and develop mine safety and health standards and programs which benefit the industry. Failure to report may result in citations and monetary assessments.

How Do We Report? The Mine Accident, Injury, and Illness Report (Form 7000-1) must be completed for those incidents which are defined as accidents, occupational injuries, or occupational illnesses. Must be completed and submitted within 10 working days Must be retained at mine for 5 years.

The Quarterly Mine Employment and Coal Production Report (Form 7000-2) must be completed by each operator or contractor working on mine property and meeting the reporting requirements under 30 CFR Part 45 guidelines. Must be submitted within 15 days after end of quarter.

MSHA Form 7000-1 Section A - Identification Data 7- digit, numeric MSHA ID number 3 or 4 digit, alpha-numeric contractor ID number (if applicable) report category (metal/nonmetal or coal) name of the mine where accident occurred company name and a box to check if the report

pertains to a contractor. For contractors, the contractor name should be shown in addition to the company name. Form 7000-1 Section B - Immediately Reportable to MSHA

1. A death of an individual at a mine. 2. An injury to an individual at a mine which has a reasonable potential to cause death. 3.

A coal or rock outburst that causes withdrawal of miners or that disrupts regular mining activity for more than one hour. 10. An unstable condition at an impoundment, refuse pile, or culm bank that requires

emergency action in order to prevent failure, or which causes individuals to evacuate an area; Or, failure of an impoundment, refuse pile or culm bank. . 11.

12. An event at a mine that causes death or bodily injury to an individual not on the mine property at the time the event occurs. Examples: a detonation of explosives at a mine which throws material outside mine property, or a haulage truck which rolls off the mine property and causes an injury.

Questions & Answers on Part 50 Why are part 50 audits conducted? 1. To ensure that an operator understands what is reportable, to determine if he/she is complying correctly, and to determine if operator is under- or over-reporting

1. If an audit is requested by the operator. Because the mine is on the program of accident reduction (PAR) which requires that a 3-year audit be conducted at the mine. In order to determine the sentinels of safety award winners, and. When a fatality occurs at a mine, the mine is audited for the year the fatality occurred and the two preceding years.

Medical Treatment and First Aid Medically treated injuries ARE reportable. First aid injuries are NOT reportable provided there are no lost workdays, restricted work activity, or transfer because of the injury. What Is First Aid?

One time treatment and subsequent observation of minor scratches, cuts, burns, splinters, and so forth, which do not ordinarily require medical care. Remember, first aid can be administered by a physician or another medical person, and medical treatment can be administered by someone other than a physician.

Medical Treatment Suturing (stitching) of any wound. Treatment of fractures. Application of a cast, splint, or other means of immobilizing an injured part of the body.

Medical Treatment Treatment of an infection resulting from work injury. Treatment of a bruise by the drainage of blood. Surgical debridement

(the removal of foreign material and dead or contaminated tissue) Medical Treatment Treatment of abrasions that occur at greater than full skin depth. Treatment of second- and third-degree

burns is almost always medical treatment. Abrasions First Aid Treatment Limited to cleaning a wound, soaking, applying antiseptics, nonprescription medication and bandages on the first visit. Also follow-up visits to change dressing or bandage.

Abrasions Medical Treatment Includes examination for removal of imbedded foreign material, multiple soakings, whirlpool treatment, treatment of infection, or other professional treatments and any treatment involving more than a minor, spot-type injury. Bruises

First Aid Treatment Limited to a single soaking or application of cold compresses, and follow-up visits if they are limited only to observation. Bruises Medical Treatment Includes multiple soakings, draining of collected blood, or other treatment beyond mere

observation Burns, Thermal & Chemical First Aid Limited to cleaning or flushing the surface, soaking, applying cold compresses, antiseptics, and bandaging on the first visit. Follow-up visits are limited to observation, changing bandages, or cleaning.

Most first-degree burns only require first aid treatment. Burns, Thermal & Chemical Medical Treatment Includes a series of treatments including soaks, whirlpool, skin grafts, and surgical debridement. Most second- and third-degree burns require

medical treatment. Cuts and Lacerations First Aid Treatment Is the same as for abrasions except the application of butterfly closures for cosmetic purposes only may be considered first aid. Cuts and Lacerations

Medical Treatment Includes the application of butterfly closures for noncosmetic purposes, sutures (stitches), surgical debridement, treatment of infection, or other physician-type treatments. Eye Injuries First Aid Treatment Limited to irrigation, removal of foreign

material NOT imbedded in the eye, and application of nonprescription medications. Follow-up visits to a physician are limited to observation only. Eye Injuries Medical Treatment Involve removal of imbedded foreign objects

Use of prescription medications Other than initial treatment or preventative Other physician-type treatment Inhalation of Toxic or Corrosive Gases First Aid Treatment Limited to removal of employee to fresh air or

the one-time administration of oxygen for several minutes. Inhalation of Toxic or Corrosive Gases Medical Treatment Consists of any professional treatment beyond that mentioned under first aid, and ALL cases involving loss of consciousness

Foreign Objects First Aid Limited to cleaning the wound, removal of any foreign object by tweezers or other simple techniques, application of antiseptics and nonprescription medications, and bandaging on the first visit. Follow-up visits are limited to observation

including changing of bandages. Foreign Objects Medical Treatment Consists of the removal of any foreign object by a physician due to the depth of the embedment, the size or shape of the object, or the location of the wound. Treatment for infection, treatment of a reaction

to tetanus booster, or other professional treatment is considered medical treatment. Sprains and Strains First Aid Treatment Limited to soaking, application of hot or cold compresses, and use of elastic bandages on the first visit. Follow-up visits for observation, including

changing the bandages, are first aid. Sprains and Strains Medical Treatment Includes a series of hot and/or cold soaks, use of whirlpools, diathermy treatment, or other professional treatments. Back Injuries

Are strains, sprains and back injuries reportable? Yes, if they occur at the mine, meet the conditions of occupational injuries; and result in lost workdays or restricted activity

Bee/Wasp Stings, Insect/Animal Bites Are they considered occupational injuries or illnesses if they occur on mine property? Classified as occupational injuries because of the

instantaneous event. Chiropractor Is treatment by a chiropractor considered medical treatment? Yes, a chiropractor can perform medical treatment. Look at the

severity of the case and what is done instead of who provides it Days Away From Work What are they and how are they calculated? Days which the employee would have worked, but could not because of an injury or illness. Begin when the employee does not meet his

next scheduled work day. Do not count days that the employee was not scheduled to work. Days of Restricted Work Activity What are days of restricted work activity? Days employee was assigned to another job on a temporary basis; Days the employee worked on a permanent job less

than full time; Days the employee worked at a permanently assigned job but could not perform all the duties connected with that job because of an occupational injury or occupational illness. Drugs, Alcohol or Horseplay If an employee is injured while under the influence of alcohol or drugs or engaged in

horseplay, is it reportable? Yes, if the worker is on mine property when injured. Heart Attacks If an employee suffers a heart attack at work, is taken home, and then dies, is this a reportable case? Yes. All fatal and nonfatal heart attacks

occurring on mine property must be reported. A final determination will be made by MSHA on a case-by-case basis and the fatality may not be chargeable to the mine. Lightning If an employee is struck by lightning, is it reportable? Yes, the employee is on mine property when

struck. Occupational Illness An occupational illness is an illness or disease of an employee. The illness is reportable if it MAY have resulted from work or exposure at a mine or was an illness for which an award of compensation was made.

Occupational Injury An occupational injury is any injury to an employee which occurs at a mine. To be reportable, the injury must: 1. Require medical treatment 2. Result in death or loss of consciousness 3. Result in the inability of the injured person to

perform all the job duties required by the job 4. Require the injured person to be temporarily assigned to other duties, or 5. Require him to be transferred to another job 6. Require him to be terminated. Off-Mine Property Are off-mine property injuries reportable to MSHA?

MSHA has the authority over what occurs on mine property. MSHA exercises no authority over highways and other off-mine locations. Offsite fatal and nonfatal injuries caused by an event at a mine are investigated by MSHA, and should be reported, however, they are not charged to the mining industry. Pain Prescriptions

Prescription Medication The use of prescription medication alone in any case other than for an eye injury is NOT reportable medical treatment for an occupational injury. Parking Lot Injuries Are parking lot injuries reportable when employees are arriving for work or leaving

after the shift? Yes, if this parking lot is on mine property. Injuries to employees are reportable if they happen anywhere on mine property. Rights of Way, Railroads Are injuries happening on railroads and right-of-way located on mine property reportable?

Injuries occurring at these locations are judged on a case-by-case basis by MSHA. Teeth, Permanent or False Is an injury involving permanent or false teeth reportable? Loss or damage to permanent teeth causing dental repair is

reportable. Broken false teeth or damage to artificial limbs does not constitute a reportable injury.
