What regulations will you follow?

Rawson is subject to oversight by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). Rawson complies with all MSHA regulations in addition to regulations set by the state. Since a majority of Rawson’s plants are located in Connecticut, Rawson complies with Connecticut regulations at all of their plants even though Rhode Island has less stringent regulations.

For blasting, Rawson requires its subcontractors to operate at blasting levels that are proven by the U.S. Bureau of Mines to protect the health and safety of neighbors and employees, as well as the integrity of nearby above ground and underground structures.
