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.

MSHA New Miner Training (8 Hours)

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.
