MSHA Part 46 Surface Mining Online Training Certification

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

Training can begin immediately. Upon successful completion the student will have immediate access to a printable certificate and wallet card.

Surface mining presents unique health and safety hazards, such as powered haulage accidents, material engulfment, slip and falls, machinery accidents, and more. Online training raises awareness of common mining hazards and helps prevent avoidable injuries, chronic illnesses, and death.

MSHA surface training requirements apply to all mining employees, including contractors, and experienced miners must complete annual refresher training. Working in surface mines can be hazardous-even deadly-without proper safety training. Miners who successfully complete MSHA Part 46 training online are better equipped to recognize and avoid the common causes of accidents and injuries in the surface mining industry.

Our selection of MSHA surface training online courses cover numerous surface miner training requirements, including new miner training, newly hired experienced miner training, annual refresher training, and miners' rights and responsibilities. We also provide online certification in topics such as confined spaces, electrical safety, traffic patterns and controls, powered haulage equipment, materials handling safety, and surface mining hazards overview (see complete list below).

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is responsible for managing health and safety issues at mines. Mining regulations are divided into two parts: underground mining and surface mining. MSHA Part 46 training applies to surface mining, including shell dredging, sand, gravel, surface stone, surface clay, colloidal phosphate, and surface limestone mines.

To be MSHA compliant your company must have a training plan that is approved by MSHA and administered by a competent person. Your company can use any or all of our courses as part of that plan. Training can begin immediately anywhere there is an Internet connection.
