Consider this hypothetical situation:
You’re a construction worker, you’re preparing to work as a contractor at a surface mine covered by the MSHA Part 46 training regulations, and you’ll be building a structure (not at all what comes to your mind when you think of surface mining).
Got that? If you’re still reading, we think that’s because this isn’t such a hypothetical situation to you at all, and maybe it directly relates to something you’ll be doing soon.
So the question is this: Do you have to take all 24 hours of the mandatory MSHA Part 46 New Miner training?
We answer that question in this article. So read on.
