MSHA Aggregate Safety Series: Dredging

MSHA recently published the following video that focuses on training requirements and best practices for dredging operations that extract and process sand and gravel. Dredging is an aggregate mining activity, an operation usually carried out at least partly underwater, with the purpose of extracting material from the bottom and then sending it to the shore by pipelines or pontoon-mounted conveyor belts.
