Mining can be a dangerous business, but Eduwhere wants you to stay safe on the job. That’s why we offer several mine safety courses, including the MSHA Part 46 Refresher. MSHA requires annual refresher training for miners that fall under Part 46, which applies to shell dredging, sand, gravel, surface stone, surface clay, colloidal phosphate, and surface limestone mines. You should be spending a minimum of 8 hours on your refresher training, and our course is designed to help you meet that time requirement while also allowing you to focus your time more on the topics you need and less on the ones you already understand. This 8 hour time requirement is for your safety.
The topics covered in this course closely match the template provided by MSHA for Part 46 training. They include Hazard Communication (HazCom), Escape and Emergency Evacuation Plans, and Prevention of Accidents, among many others. Remember, MSHA’s Part 46 Refresher regulations also require site-specific training, including a review of site-specific hazards and updates on any changes at the mine that might affect your health and safety, and this is something that your mine site will have to provide to you in addition to the topics covered in this online course.
Due in part to the site-specific nature of MSHA’s requirements, your signed “Pink Sheet” does not come from Eduwhere (though we will provide you with an unsigned one), and must be signed by the responsible party for health and safety training at your facility or organization, because they are the ones verifying that your training was completed appropriately, not Eduwhere. Because of this, it is always a good idea to check with your mine to see what training they approve or if there are additional training topic requirements for your particular job on site.
Mine safety is serious business! Let Eduwhere help you stay in compliance with your training and stay safe on site with our MSHA Part 46 Refresher course.
