In MSHA’s Part 46, the regulation specifies a number of specific roles. One of those roles is the “Person Responsible for Safety and Health Training.”
It’s not always obvious what that means, even in a simple case when a mine operator is providing mining safety training for Part 46 compliance to employees who are full-time employees at the mine.
And that can get even more confusing if a person is completing training online, or if the person taking the training doesn’t work as a normal employee of the mine but instead is working there as a contractor.
So, we’ll give you the low-down on what (and who) the “Person Responsible for Safety and Health Training” is in all these various circumstances.
