MSHA Part 46 Annual Refresher and New Miner Training  for Metal/Non-Metal Surface Miners

With the health and safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, exemptions to re-certifications (refresher training) will not be granted; however, the due dates will be extended by at least the time the government is operating under the President’s emergency declaration. https://www.msha.gov/msha-response-covid-19 

 

PLEASE NOTE: New Miners must still be trained in accordance with the MSHA standard (no exemptions, no time extensions). In order to accommodate the immediate need for new miner training, all NSCNNE virtual MSHA classes will contain the required New Miner curriculum. These classes do meet the requirement for annual refresher training as well.

​If you have questions, please contact our office at info@nscnne.org  or (603) 228-1401

Cost:
$50.00

* This program is funded in part through support from the federal MSHA State Grants Program.

VIRTUAL Classroom MSHA Training
(Satisfies Pt. 46 Annual Refresher Requirements and the first 8 hours of New Miner training) 

Pre-registration is required. Attendees may login through their individual devices or a company can project the training to a group of miners. Due to continued health and safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, social distancing of 6 feet should be maintained between attendees and the gatherings should contain no more than 10 people. 

The 2020 training season has ended. Our office is preparing on the 2021 training scheduling. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions please contact our office: info@nscnne.org

MSHA Part 46 Annual Refresher Training  for Metal/Non-Metal Surface Miners

In accordance with MSHA (Mine Safety & Health Administration) regulations, this one-day program covers  7 hours of training for the annual training requirements for owners and operators under 30 CFR Part 46. Upon completion, students will receive an annual refresher training record for 7 hours of training. (Students will still need to complete a minimum of one hour of site specific training at each of their worksites in order to meet the 8 hour MSHA annual training requirement.) This certification will expire one year after completion. 

All classes at the Concord, NH location include the option of a 3 hour breakout training session specifically for truck drivers.

* Cities and towns should refer to the Mine Act to determine if their sand & gravel operations would be subject to the 1977 Miners Act, and would therefore be expected to meet annual MSHA refresher training for their miners.  Cities and towns that operate screeners and/or crushers to process material, and then take that material off-site to apply to public roads or other worksites DO fall under MSHA jurisdiction. Towns and cities that purchase sand and gravel for their roadways and other projects (instead of producing it themselves) DO NOT fall under MSHA jurisdiction.

PLEASE NOTE:  Pre-recorded on-line training is NOT APPROVED by MSHA to meet MSHA Part 46 Refresher Training or                        New Miner Training CFR requirements.

For scheduling questions, please contact the National Safety Council of Northern New England at 800-834-6472 or info@nscnne.org

Course price includes student materials, training record, continental breakfast, lunch and refreshments.

$50.00

MSHA New Miner Training 
for Metal/Non-Metal Surface Miners
  • All new miners are required by MSHA to complete 24 hours of training in their first 90 days of employment. Our office is now offering a 8 hour generic program that can assist mines in delivering a portion of this training, including:

  • The required 4 hours of training that is required by MSHA to be conducted before a new employee can enter a mine site

  • A First Aid overview and "The Rules to Live By" segment training that is required by MSHA to be conducted in the first 90 days.

  • Other modules which will meet overall MSHA New Miner training requirements

  • Completion of the New Miner Training and the supporting documentation is the ultimate responsibility of the mine operator, who should compile a list of tasks a miner could be expected to do on a mine site and to spend time reviewing it with the new miner. Part of this training needs to include operation of specific equipment on their mine site, as well as the observation/evaluation of the operation of that equipment.  

  • (** Another 6 hours of the required 24 hours of training can be accomplished by registering for a National Safety Council First Aid/CPR/AED class which is offered monthly in Concord, NH for an additional cost of $50.00.)

  • New Miners taking both this MSHA New Miner Training course (8 hours) plus the NSC First Aid, CPR/AED course (6 hours estimated) will have completed 14 hours of the required 24 hours of training required by MSHA to take place during their first 90 days of employment. The remaining 10 hours of training would need to be site and task specific, conducted by competent persons at the mine, as outlined above.

  • On-line training is NOT APPROVED by MSHA to meet MSHA Part 46 Refresher Training or New Miner Training CFR requirements.
