Mining Safety

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has mandated MSHA Part 46 mine safety training for surface mining operations. MSHA requires that a mine designate a competent person to instruct workers during training. The instructor must be competent in all aspects of the surface miner training in MSHA and could adequately evaluate employees on whether the training has been effective. To meet the MSHA training requirements our professionally produced MSHA training videos can assist qualified instructors. Ensure your mining operation is MSHA compliant with the help of our surface miner training videos.

MSHA has regulations for new miner training and newly hired experienced miner training. To qualify as a newly hired experienced miner, the employee needs to have 12 months of cumulative surface mining employment or the equivalent work in another type of operation. MSHA Part 46 covers training and retraining at surface mining operations at the following types of mines: sand, gravel, marble, granite, sandstone, surface stone, surface clay, slate, shale, traprock, kaolin, cement, felspar, colloidal phosphate, surface limestone, and lime. In addition, construction workers who are exposed to the mine operations on a frequent, extended basis must receive the comprehensive training for new miners and retraining.

Our Surface Miner Training video ensures your employees will have the knowledge they need to safety and effectively work in mining operations.
