Just Released: Mining Safety Courses!

RedVector is happy to announce 3 new mining courses. In conjunction with ClickSafety, RedVector has released online surface mining safety courses, MSHA 4-Hour New Miner Part 1 (Site Entry), MSHA 4-Hour New Miner Part 2 (General Safety and Health), and MSHA 8-Hour Mine Safety and Health Refresher. These courses are designed to help meet the requirements of the U.S. Department of Labor Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) Part 46 Training Regulations.

The offerings are designed for those who work or intend to work, in surface mining or processing environments, such as sand, gravel, surface stone, surface clay, colloidal phosphate or surface limestone mines.

The 4-hour courses serve as a primer for new or inexperienced miners and can be used towards meeting new miner training requirements, providing information needed to enter and work on a mine site. The content covers the basics of what to expect in the mining environment, common safety and health hazards, general emergency actions, rights as a miner regarding safety, and more.

ClickSafety’s 8-hour Mine Safety and Health Refresher course is designed to help meet MSHA’s annual 8-hour health and safety refresher training requirement as specified in MSHA’s Part 46. This course is relevant for miners, supervisors, managers, mine operators, miners’ representatives, subcontractors and others who require the annual refresher training. It covers work environment basics, emergency medical procedures, health and safety aspects of specific tasks, responsibilities of supervisors, line management, and others to maintain a safe environment and more.

Like all ClickSafety offerings, the MSHA courses use a flexible, customizable and interactive “student-centered” e-learning platform designed to ensure learning and retention. Participants who successfully complete the courses will receive course completion and training record documentation and IACET Continuing Education Units.

MSHA 2017 Mine Safety and Health Refresher (8-Hour)

According to Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) requirements, a miner must receive annual refresher training. Specifically, as stated in Section 46.8, a miner must receive 8 hours of health and safety refresher training, a minimum of every 12 months. The training must include instruction on changes at the mine that could adversely affect the miner’s health or safety. The refresher training must also address other health and safety subjects relevant to the mine.

ClickSafety’s MSHA 2017 Mine Safety and Health Refresher (8-Hour) course is designed in part to assist in meeting these training requirements and is available for miners, supervisors, managers, mine operators, miners’ representatives, and subcontractors who require this annual refresher training as specified by MSHA.

Note: Mine Operators and Mine Contractors must update the annual refresher section of their MSHA Part 46 Training Plan to include ClickSafety before assigning this 8-Hour refresher course.

Upon successful completion of the course, each student will receive a ClickSafety Certificate of Completion showing the 0.8 continuing education unit (CEU) and 8 contact hours received from an IACET-accredited course provider.

MSHA 2017 4-Hour New Miner Training, Part 1 (Site Entry)

Part 46 of Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) regulations requires that mine operators and/or independent contractors provide no less than 4 hours of training to new miners before they enter a mine site. The training must address the hazards of working at a mine, as well as any hazards specific to the site. This ClickSafety online course can be used towards meeting these new miner training requirements.

Part 2 further discusses emergency procedures and provides a review of first aid methods, as well as self-rescue and respiratory devices. New Miner Training, Part 2 will also discuss some of the hazards found at a mine site, such as the health hazards of silica dust, and the dangers and controls of welding and cutting, confined spaces, hazardous energies, and moving machine parts.
Part 46 of MSHA regulations requires that mine operators and/or independent contractors provide 24 hours of training within 90 days of when a new miner starts work. This ClickSafety online course can be used towards meeting this training requirement.
Upon successful completion, each student will receive a ClickSafetyCertificate of Completion that will show the 0.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and 1 Contact Hour received for this IACET-approved course.
