    • I don't think so, the codes have always been there, it all depends on whether the companies adhere to them. I can tell you in the construction industry (I'm a retire ironworker and now a welding inspector) that the general foreman for a company are directly responsible for the welfare of his men on the job. That asshole Don Blankenship CEO had one thought in mind and that was to break the Union and enlist the help of rats. As much as I feel for those who lost their lives, they bear some responsiblity by working in what they must have know as UNSAFE working conditions. If risking your life and your families welfare is more important than safety then I quess you get what you asked for, which is sad. We all make choices in life and we have to live or die by those decisions. I just don't understand the politican mindset of those who vote they way they do, when they know that the corporations like Massey view you not as a employee but as a disposable human being

    • You can look at it both ways. But for me a "Safe" mine is a productive mine.

      • Amen Big Time! polo..Thanks for a common sense post....Coal...

      • That question beggars a answer..aren't you a little concerned about the men who mine the coal?..See what a coal stock will do if you lose a hundred or two plus plus men like they did in Centralia and West Frankfort..I spent thirty one years underground shooting coal, roof bolting and mine examining and our mine put safety above all else and we loaded over six million tons per year..Safety does not mean slower there's always a safer faster way of doing things communication with your buddy and looking out for his well being as he does the same for you equals production big time! ...Whatever Coal..Live long be Happy....
