Live Online MSHA Part 46 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 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.
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 a computer connected to a high speed internet connection, and 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.

(a) You must provide each miner with no less than 8 hours of annual refresher training-
(1) No later than 12 months after the miner begins work at the mine, or no later than March 30, 2001, whichever is later; and
(2) Thereafter, no later than 12 months after the previous annual refresher training was completed.
(b) The refresher training must include instruction on changes at the mine that could adversely affect the miner's health or safety.
(c) Refresher training must also address other health and safety subjects that are relevant to mining operations at the mine. Recommended subjects include, but are not limited to: applicable health and safety requirements, including mandatory health and safety standards; information about the physical and health hazards of chemicals in the miner's work area, the protective measures a miner can take against these hazards, and the contents of the mine's HazCom program; transportation controls and communication systems; escape and emergency evacuation plans, firewarning and firefighting; ground conditions and control; traffic patterns and control; working in areas of highwalls; water hazards, pits, and spoil banks; illumination and night work; first aid; electrical hazards; prevention of accidents; health; explosives; and respiratory devices. Training is also recommended on the hazards associated with the equipment that has accounted for the most fatalities and serious injuries at the mines covered by this rule, including: mobile equipment (haulage and service trucks, front-end loaders and tractors); conveyor systems; cranes; crushers; excavators; and dredges. Other recommended subjects include: maintenance and repair (use of hand tools and welding equipment); material handling; fall prevention and protection; and working around moving objects (machine guarding).
Refresher Training Required: Every 1 year(s).
The course fee entitles a single user to participate in the online course for at least six (6) months.
