Title: Stickler takes the helm at MSHA

Abstract

New agency director of the USA's Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), Richard E. Stickler, inherits responsibility for implementing the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response (MINER) Act amidst one of the US coal industry's most unsafe periods. The article gives an outline of the new leader's career in the coal industry and presents his views on the importance and the implementation of the Act. Stickler's No.1 priority is to do everything he can to protect the health and safety of America's miners. He believes that the goal for everyone in the mining community should be to achieve zero injuries and zero fatalities, and put an end to occupational illness.
