This is a training course for all mine personnel involved in underground mining.
The underground miner faces a constant hazard from rockfalls. In order to protect yourself and your co-workers, it is necessary that you understand why rock falls, and what you can do to keep yourself safe.
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.
