These general agreements define the jurisdiction between OSHA and Oregon OSHA in Oregon: in order to further clarify jurisdiction and promote working relationships with OSHA and other public authorities, we have a number of inter-institutional agreements or memorandums of understandings (MoUs). The full package of agreements is presented here in three categories: in general, to clarify our judicial agreement with the federal OSHA; clarification of federal jurisdiction with other federal agencies operating in Oregon; and state, clarify jurisdictions with other Oregon State or federal authorities. These federal agreements flow into Oregon OSHA and define jurisdiction between us and various federal authorities: the 1979 inter-institutional agreement between OSHA and MSHA stipulates that the OSHA Act grants regulatory powers over the working conditions of all private sector employees, unless other federal authorities have the right to impose laws, in which case that authority sets a precedent. In order to minimize jurisdictional conflicts, there is a long-standing Memorandum of Understanding in which both agencies have defined the types of facilities that are mines and not. However, this agreement did not anticipate all the permutations. To date, legal, political and legal decisions are often consulted to determine which authority is competent. These state agreements clarify the jurisdiction and labor agreements between Oregon OSHA and other public or federal authorities: you can learn more about the 2006 MINER Act on the MSHA side of the U.S. Department of Labor. The 1979 agreement contains more information on inter-institutional cooperation and surveillance between MSHA, the U.S. Laboratory Department and the Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). After the creation of MSHA in 1977, OSHA and MSHA entered into an inter-institutional agreement to establish authority between them. Intensive federal regulation of occupational safety and health began when Congress introduced civil sanctions for mines with the Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969 and for other employers with the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. S14: Oregon OSHA, Oregon Department of Housing and Community Services, and Oregon Department of RevenueSubject: Farm worker camps, New/Renovated Housing Tax Credits OSHA has much broader authority than MSHA.
While MSHA is solely responsible for mining, OSHA is responsible for most employers and private sector workers as well as some public sector employees. The question, then, is who has the final say on regulation. F1: OSHA and U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Railroad Administration Mines contain land from which minerals are extracted from natural deposits in 100th liquid form for their intrinsic value, as opposed to construction and landscaping. Oil and gas activities are not subject to the MSHA. There are also no operations that dissolve minerals for extraction. S12: Oregon Health Licensing AgencySubject: Formaldehyde Hazards The Mining Act of 1977 governs all mine operators and gives MSHA authority over the industry. While the Agency clearly has the power to regulate and control active mining activities across the country, its scope has limitations and stakeholders should be aware of when it is appropriate to question the scope of MSHA. This webinator will check the limits of MSHA`s competence, from the OSHA/MSHA Inter-Development Agreement to the recent decision of the 6th Circuit at Maxxim Rebuild.
