Miner Annual Refresher Training

Course Introduction

Did you know that if you have been hired to work in the mining industry, you are considered a "miner" under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977.

This course is designed to meet MSHA Part 46 annual refresher requirements. Part 46 applies to shell dredging, sand, gravel, surface stone, surface clay, colloidal phosphate, and surface limestone mines. If your work is in other MSHA regulated operations or you are an independent contractor that operates in other types of mining operations, you may be required to complete Part 48 training instead.

Course Details

It is the responsibility for all companies working in the mining industry to develop and implement a plan for training new miners (24 hours) in addition to providing annual refresher training (8 hours).

Annual (8 hour) Refresher Topics Include:

  • Statutory Rights
  • Hazard Recognition
  • Emergency Procedures
  • HazCom Training
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Plus any of the topics you may require for your operations. We will tailor the course content for you at no additional cost.

How long is the certification good for?

8 hours of annual retraining is required by MSHA every year.

This program is required annually for all those that have successfully completed the new miner training within the last year. This program will also renew the MSHA 5000.23 certificate.
