Safety Training (Non-Credit)

Anyone who works in the mining industry, including contractors working on a mine property, is considered a “miner” under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977. The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) operates under the authority of this Act. The United States Congress created MSHA to help reduce fatalities, injuries and illnesses among miners in our nation’s mines through a variety of activities, including on-site mine safety and health training.
