As federal regulation regarding mine workers safety increases, one Pennsylvania quarry has found itself forced to move some of its Amish workers from their post, The Morning Call reported Tuesday.
Russell Stone Products, a Pennsylvania-based company with a sandstone quarry operation, said it had to move five of its Amish employees to other roles at the quarry because of their refusal to wear hard hats, its owner, Dan Russell, told the newspaper.

Russell said he did not agree with MSHA's policy, "but I have to live with it."
