MSHA New Surface Miner - Part 46 - Mine Safety Online Training Courses

Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) Surface Miner Training - Title 30 CFR Part 46 defines health and safety rules and compliance requirements for non–metal and non–coal surface mines. MSHA Part 46 requires training for new miner, newly hired experienced miner, new tasks, site–specific hazards, and annual refresher training.

MSHA Part 46 regulations require that New Miners complete a minimum of 24 hours of mine safety training within their first 90 days of employment. The employee must complete 4 of these hours prior to beginning work at the mine.  Our Online MSHA New Miner Training course meets the training requirements in 30 CFR Part 46.

MSHA also requires a minimum of 8 hours of Annual Refresher training per year. This Annual Refresher training must cover Changes at the Mine that could adversely affect a miner’s health or safety and other health and safety subjects relevant to mining operations at the time.

Supplemental mine safety training courses are also available for your initial or refresher training. Surface miners and surface mining contractors choose the course as approved by their employer for credit toward any required MSHA Part 46 training.
