This Annual Refresher course is designed to assist you in meeting Mining Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) Part 46 requirements. MSHA Part 46 applies to shell dredging, sand, gravel, surface stone, surface clay, colloidal phosphate, and surface limestone mines.

The refresher training will also address other health and safety subjects relevant to the mine. If your work is in other MSHA regulated operations or you are an independent contractor that operates in other types of mining operations, you may be required to complete Part 48 training instead of Part 46 training.
