Course Introduction/ Synopsis:
Did you know that if you have been hired to work in the mining industry, you are considered a "miner" under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977.
This course is designed to meet MSHA Part 46 annual refresher requirements. Part 46 applies to shell dredging, sand, gravel, surface stone, surface clay, colloidal phosphate, and surface limestone mines. If your work is in other MSHA regulated operations or you are an independent contractor that operates in other types of mining operations, you may be required to complete Part 48 training instead.
It is the responsibility for all companies working in the mining industry to develop and implement a plan for training new miners (24 hours) in addition to providing annual refresher training (8 hours).
Annual (8 hour) Refresher Topics Include:
- Statutory Rights
- Hazard Recognition
- Emergency Procedures
- HazCom Training
- Personal Protective Equipment
- CPR/ AED
- Plus any of the topics you may require from the 24 hour new miner training
How long is the certification good for?
Retraining is required by MSHA every year.
