MSHA 32-Hour Training for New/Inexperienced Underground Miners
Course Time: 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
This training course gives new miners the knowledge they need to face the safety and health hazards involved in underground mining. Participants will learn their rights and responsibilities, job related safety procedures, rescue and first aid techniques. Students will receive their MSHA 5000-23 form upon completion. Beginning in 2016 students will also receive a First Aid and CPR certification.
MSHA Site-Specific Requirements: This course provides participants with a total of 32 hours of the 40 required training hours. Due to the diversity of our students, task and hazard awareness training will not be included in the Utah Safety Council’s training session. The site-specific training must be conducted at the mine site according to the mine operator’s training plan. This constitutes the remaining eight-hours of required training for underground miners.
This course is also available on-site or specially arranged at the Utah Safety Council's training center.
Member: $4,050 per class up to 10 participants, each additional participant is $335.
Non-Member: $4,450 per class up to 10 participants, each additional participant is $375.
