A few things you should be aware of are:
One efficient way to keep these records would be to use formHound -- an app specifically designed to be used by mine operators and contractors to be compliant with these MSHA regulations. Being able to walk through work spaces with a tablet or smartphone and complete the examination record would be convenient and quick. If an MSHA or miner representative, it would make the records easily accessible to them through the app. Providing copies to an inspector through the app would be as easy as hooking the device up to a printer.
formHound is an app designed specifically for use in mining environments, can be easily deployed to help all such responsible individuals perform inspections on workplaces, equipment, environmental and safety processes and notify appropriate supervisors and superintendents when required.
