New MSHA Online Training Tool Helps Mine Operators and Contractors

The online tool helps workers report accidents, illnesses, and injuries.

A new online interactive training tool has been introduced by MSHA that is intended to help workers report accidents, illnesses, and injuries. This is a response to part 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations that requires mine operators to notify MSHA of these incidents.

"Accidents, injuries, and illnesses are key indicators of the effectiveness of a mine operator's health and safety program," said Joseph A. Main, assistant secretary of labor for mine safety and health. "This new tool helps clarify reporting requirements for mine operators so they can better document injuries and illnesses."

Main also said, "From the operator's perspective, it can serve as a road map to pinpoint where they are having problems and where they need to concentrate their efforts. For miners, it will help them better understand the Part 50 requirements on reporting work-related injuries and illnesses. Finally, it will enhance MSHA's ability to evaluate and develop mine safety and health initiatives which benefit the entire mining industry."
