Underground mine sites are filled with hazards, including fire, flood, structural collapse, toxic atmospheres, and dust or gas explosions. The mine's blast area introduces additional underground mining hazards, such as flyrocks, explosive fumes, and accidental premature blast. Even dust and noise, if not controlled, endanger miner safety.
Mine operators must provide safety training for Part 48 mining hazards. This online training course covers hazard recognition and avoidance and emergency and evacuation procedures. It is designed to help miners and other individuals who work on MSHA Part 48 mine sites understand and apply the health standards and safety rules necessary for safe working procedures.
