Case Study: A truck driver was fatally injured when he lost control of the haul truck he was operating. The truck went over the edge of the road and traveled approximately 550 feet through a field, crossing a ditch, a road, and an embankment, before striking a tree and rolling onto its side. The driver was thrown from the cab of the vehicle and sustained fatal head injuries. There were no berms on the haul road.

Governing Regulations

MSHA 30 CFR Part 56 details many mine safety standards. Also, Part 46 requires mines to create a training plan. This Part 56 mining training course can help meet this requirement.


IT IS YOUR COMPANYS RESPONSIBILITY to Record and certify that each miner has received training required under this part on MSHA Form 5000-23, or on a form that contains the information listed in paragraph (b) of 30 CFR § 46.9.

If you are a mine owner or supervisor and unsure how to write a training plan, we can help with our Part 46 Surface Mining Training Plan course, the only one like it in the mining training industry.

Miners must receive a minimum of 8 hours of annual refresher training. It must address health and safety subjects that are relevant to mining operations, as well as instructions on changes at the mine that could impact the miner's health or safety. Online training makes it easy to track and monitor annual refresher training, ensuring miners are following MSHA Part 46 regulations.

The refresher training must include instruction on changes at the mine that could adversely affect the miner's health or safety.

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).

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.
