Live Online MSHA Part 48 Comprehensive Annual Refresher
Our comprehensive annual refresher course is presented as a "live online" training course. You will
participate in live online discussion and interact with the instructor in
real time in an online classroom.
This course is designed to assist you in meeting Mining Safety and Health
Administration (MSHA) requirements for Part 48 above-ground mines and
above-ground operations at underground mines. It also works for Part 46 mines (surface
stone, surface clay, sand and gravel, surface limestone, colloidal
phosphate, and shell dredging mines and other surface operations that
produce marble, granite, sandstone, slate, shale, traprock, kaolin, cement,
feldspar, and lime.)
Whether you are a miner or an independent contractor, there may be additional training
that addresses issues of your specific operation. This course offers
specialized instruction that will help you do that as well as provide training
for the more generic MSHA recommended topics. In addition, it will help you
accomplish your ultimate goal beyond MSHA compliance: to keep you safe in
mine work areas.
How It Works
On the day of the training, you login to the website and launch the online classroom. You'll be in the classroom with a MSHA Certified Trainer (Randy Newcomer) along with the other students training that day. Randy will lead the training using slideshows, a couple of short videos, exercises, and his wry sense of humor. If you have a microphone and earphones, you can join in the discussion, or you can participate using the built-in chat capability. At the end of the training, Randy will provide you a worksheet to complete and return. You'll then get your signed MSHA 5000-23 form and you're good to go!
In order to participate in the online classroom, you'll need an internet connected device (computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone) and a high speed internet connection, with a browser such as Chrome, Firefox, or Edge, (PC or MAC), no additional download necessary. Instructions for accessing the classroom will be emailed to you after you enroll.
