Do you have questions about MSHA, what it means for you, and how it impacts your workplace safety training regimen? Read on to find out everything you need to know, plus a few tips for implementing Part 46 guidelines.
What is MSHA?
MSHA, or the Mining Safety and Health Administration, is the mine-specific version of OSHA. Much like OSHA, it spells out specific rules for health and workplace safety training--and, perhaps most importantly, it can act as a road-map for establishing and implementing guidelines as you train new employees or give existing workers a refresher course. Remember, this information isn't just required by law; it's also a practical way to make sure you, your company, and your employees are protected from risks of all shapes and sizes.
