Frequently Asked Question

Will this product satisfy all of MSHA's New Miner Training Requirements?

This product is intended to be utilized for at least the first 4 hours of the 24 hours of training required by the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Mine Safety and Health Administration’s (MSHA) regulations.  However, MSHA requires training that is specific to each mine site that this program cannot address.  In addition to this training, operators must train employees on all required topics required by 30 C.F.R. §46.5(b) and 30 C.F.R. §46.5(c).

Each person at a mine site is responsible for ensuring that health and safety standards are observed at all times. The employer is accountable for providing information, instruction, and supervision to all workers. A competent person(s) is obligated to ensure all workers are properly trained and are compliant with regulations. Mine employees are responsible for observing all standards and practicing safe work habits.

Your company must have a training plan that lists this training, is administered by a competent person, and complies with 30 C.F.R. §46.3. In addition, you must complete a training certificate or an MSHA form 5000-23 which meets the requirements of 30 C.F.R. §46.9.
