This is a training course for all mine personnel involved in the handling of explosives in underground mines.

The course is designed to introduce you to the types of explosives used in the mining industry and the US regulations that control their use for underground mining. While the mandates of the mining regulatory agencies are law in the US, they are also comprehensive enough to be considered best practice for mining in countries throughout the world.

The author is a Certified Mine Safety Professional as well as an MSHA Certified Instructor for both surface and underground. This course material was developed originally for the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and is compliant with MSHA regulations.
