The presentation is designed for both Contractors and Operators. The goal is to review frequently overlooked and/or missed items that many contractors are not currently doing. Training plan hidden citations; training certificates omissions; Experienced Miner training, how do you use it; communication of hazards and workplace examinations; opening contacts with your state and district MSHA offices are the areas to be discussed. Contractors who execute these items well provide safer working areas at the mine property.
