MSHA TRAM Conference Presentation on Evaluating Online Mining Safety Training Solutions

At the upcoming 2017 MSHA TRAM conference this year (October 10-12, National Mine and Health Safety Academy, Beaver, WV), we’ll be giving two presentations: one on Evaluating Online Safety Training Solutions for Mining, and a second on Current and Future Training Technologies.

This blog post supports the presentation on Evaluating Online Safety Training Solutions for Mining. It includes a recorded, on-demand webinar that covers much of the same ground I will cover/covered at MSHA TRAM, links to some additional helpful resources, a free guide about Online MSHA Compliance, a BONUS SECOND webinar on MSHA Part 46, and more.

There’s a second supporting blog post for the Current and Future Training Technologies presentation that you may also find interesting.

Evaluating Online Safety Training Solutions Webinar

Much of what I will talk about/talked about at the MSHA TRAM conference is also covered in this webinar below. Feel free to listen whenever you want. It’s about an hour long. I added a few additional mine-specific issues in the talk, but this one covers most of what I said.

You may also find that a lot of the jargon people use to discuss online safety training is unfamiliar to you. If that’s the case, you may find this Glossary of Online Safety Training Terms helpful.

Also, if you’re not familiar with MSHA Part 46, you may also want to check out this second webinar, which covers a lot of the high-level, important aspects of the regulation, and in particular addresses New Miner training and Annual Refresher training.

If you’ve got any questions about MSHA Part 46 Training, let us know by shooting us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
