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.
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).
This course is designed to meet MSHA Part 46 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.
