MSHA Certifications

It’s important to have all workers at a mine site complete their MSHA certification. Before a new miner can step onto the mining property, they need to have at least four hours of MSHA training. The new miner must complete at least 24 hours of training, within the first 90 days of work. This stated proof of training or retraining for already working miners comes from the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). Surface miners and surface mining contractors must complete a refresher training course each year, which must be a minimum of eight hours, in order to receive the MSHA certification. These refresher courses cover any changes which could harm or affect a miner’s health along with health and safety topics surrounding operations at a mine. Read more
