PART 48 B New Miner for Surface Only and Surface on Underground in Metal and Non-Metal Mines
A 24-hour New Miner Training is required. A surface mine means an area containing an open pit excavation, surface operations incident to an underground mine, or associated activities adjacent to the excavation or surface operations, from which coal or other minerals are produced for sale, exchange, or commercial use; and includes all buildings and equipment above the surface of the ground used in connection with such mining. It will cover courses that are more specific to hazards and risks in the mining environment. Everyone in the mine has to know and be familiar with, all the safety rules.
What training is required for a newly employed miner who has not gained “experienced miner” status?
If a newly employed miner has completed new miner training within 36 months of starting work at a different mine, the miner must receive “experienced miner” training. If the miner has not completed new miner training within 36 months, however, then the miner must repeat new miner training at a different mine. After completing this initial “experienced miner” or “new miner” training, the miner is then subject to all other training required for “experienced miners” at the mine.
PART 48 B Annual Refresher for Surface Operation miners
This course is intended for individuals who have completed and have received MSHA Part 48 B New Miner Training certification and/or have received MSHA Part 48 B Annual Refresher Training and require renewing their certification.
MSHA requires an annual refresher training of 8 hours for active miners. This training covers emergency procedures mines have in place for handling emergencies. these might include earthquakes, landslides, rocks falling, hazardous spills, and hazardous materials. Knowing what to do, could be the difference between life and death. This course is intended for individuals who have completed and have received MSHA Part 48 B New Miner Training certification and/or have received MSHA Part 48 B Annual Refresher Training and require renewing their certification.
To maintain MSHA compliance you must complete MSHA annual refresher training every year. Completing annual refresher training allows you to work on a mine site for the year. What happens if you skip a year? Click here to learn how and when MSHA training expires.
PART 48 B Experienced Miner for Surface Operation miners
Definition of an “Experienced Miner”
How does the new training rule change the definition of an “experienced miner”?
The old rule required a miner to receive new miner training within 12 months or to accumulate 12 months of mining experience within the previous 36 months to be considered an “experienced miner.” The new rule requires that a miner both receive new miner training and have 12 months of mining experience to qualify as an “experienced miner.”
Can the miner then lose that status as an “experienced miner” by being away from mining for a while?
No. Once a miner has received new miner training and has accumulated 12 months of mining experience, MSHA considers that miner to be experienced for life for training purposes. If the miner is away from mining for more than 36 months after receiving new miner training, and before accumulating 12 months of mining experience, the new rule requires that miner to repeat new miner training. After taking new miner training the miner will then have another 36 months in which to finish accumulating the 12 months of mining experience needed to be an “experienced miner” for training purposes.
