ForensisGroup coal industry expert witnesses have extensive experience in this industry.
Coal mining is the extracting of coal from the ground. Coal is used for its energy content and is widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. They also work in coal mining operations, along with coal combustion residuals (CCR) or “coal ash.”
Our experts work on projects that include site characterization, remedial implementation, and coal mine closures.
These experts are familiar with all coal regulations and have significant working knowledge of federal, state and local environmental regulations and programs. They coordinate and advise a variety of individuals representing clients, including executives, scientists, engineers, regulators, legal counsel, and other business professionals.
They consult on issues in coal industry workplace safety, health risks to employees, and prevention of exposure to hazardous substances, and danger from flammable, explosive, electrical, noise, radiation and manual handling risks. They investigate accidents, injuries, or occupational diseases in coal operations to determine causes and preventable measures. Our experts inspect coal facilities, machinery, and safety equipment to identify and correct potential hazards, and to ensure safety regulation compliance.
They are familiar with OSHA and DOT standards and requirements.
