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. Authors Elaine T.

This is a training course for all mine personnel involved in underground mining. Falls of roof have always been a hazard in underground mines. Many miners have lost their lives to roof falls, but these types of accidents are becoming less common as ground control practices have improved. A combination of research, stronger regulations, and best practices by companies have made it less likely that today's miners will be injured or killed by falling rock. Miners must recognize the hazards, however, as well as the need to install ground supports correctly, and protect themselves and their co-workers from ground fall accidents. 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.

Health and Safety Representatives play a pivotal role in keeping workplaces healthy and safe. By representing workers in their area of responsibility, health and safety representatives provide a means for workers to raise health and safety issues within their workplace, and follow a process with managers to resolve them. Safety is everyone's responsibility, and building a healthier and safer work environment is a company's top priority. Following proper safety procedures begins with individuals, and ultimately affects each person in the company. We should all work together to ensure that the work environment is healthy and safe. Setting a Health and Safety (H & S) example for others in the work environment is the strongest convincer that anybody in an organization has in his armour to ensure that the dream of a safe workplace can be achieved. The key is that we can work together to recognize potential hazards and risks, and prove our H & S commitment to achieve our goals. One should never work on a project or conduct a procedure without fully understanding how to go about it safely. Mature people are always willing to ask someone who is knowledgeable to assist. Once help has been given, ensure that their suggestions and proposed changes are implemented if necessary.

Off-site road transportation (access roads) to mining operations (public or private, semi-private) poses a series of unique challenges to people in charge of their Safety, Security and Hazard Management. This course draws information from a number of real life studies performed on this type of road by the authors, and presents them following the logic of a Safety, Security and Hazard Management Report that could be prepared for a mine access road going from fictional "Gate A" to "Mine B," crossing a variety of terrain and subject to an array of geo-environmental and human-made hazards. This course is generic enough to be relevant to various different situations and environments around the world. The course is divided into five steps, which correspond to those necessary to compile a Safety, Security and Hazard Management Report, namely: Step 1: Preliminary Data Gathering; Step 2: Generic Preliminary Inspection/Review of the Road; Step 3: Specific Aspects Linked to Mining Roads; Step 4: Hazard Identification Primer; and Step 5: Possible Mitigations. Steps 1 through 3 are combined in Part 1: Introduction and Preliminary Tasks. Step 4 is presented in Part 2: Hazard Identification Primer, and Step 5 is found in Part 3: Possible Mitigations. Three technical appendices deliver specific information that will help road managers to design specific signals and signage. This course makes references to prior Edumine courses by F. Oboni and C. Oboni (Risk and Decision Making and Engineering for Success in Mining) whenever necessary, but neither requires their knowledge nor repeats any information already presented on risk assessment, risk, or management.

This course is the second of two Environmental Health and Safety courses by the author. It has been prepared with the intention of providing mining personnel with a set of practical guidelines on Environmental Emergency Response, i.e. how to respond to a variety of environmental emergencies. The first course focuses on Environmental Emergency Preparedness. With a little adaptation using local information, such as local emergency contacts and the inclusion of MSDS sheets and local emergency procedures, the guidelines in this course can be applied to any mining or processing operation. They can also be used in a site Environmental Management System (EMS), site Environmental Management Plan (EMP), and/or site emergency management Preparedness and Response Plan. At the very least, these guidelines can be used as a site emergency planning and response checklist. This course is split into four parts: Part 1 - The Generic EHS Emergency Response Plan Part 2 - Response Planning for Chemical Spills Part 3 - Response Planning for Oil Spills Part 4 - Response Planning for a Hazardous Gas Emergency Authors Ralph Gunness   Duration: 5 Hours Access: 90 Days Category: Safety Level: Specialize Version Date: October 6, 2003   ​Need to train a team?

This course is the first of two Environmental Health and Safety courses by the author. It has been prepared with the intention of providing mining personnel with a set of practical guidelines on Environmental Emergency Preparedness, i.e. how to start managing and preparing for an environmental emergency. The second course focuses on Environmental Emergency Response. With a little adaptation using local information, such as local emergency contacts and the inclusion of MSDS sheets and local emergency procedures, the guidelines in this course can be applied to any mining or processing operation. They can also be used in a site Environmental Management System (EMS), site Environmental Management Plan (EMP), and/or site Emergency Management Preparedness and Response Plan. At the very least, these guidelines can be used as a site emergency planning and response checklist. This course is split into three parts: Part 1: Environmental Emergencies, including discussion of their occurrence, outcomes, and risk analysis. Part 2: Corporate Governance, including discussion of corporate strategy, management, and an example of risk reduction. Part 3: Preparedness Plans, including discussion of plans to deal with possible or probable emerging emergencies or disasters, plans to manage after-effects of an emergency or disaster, an emergency preparedness checklist, and the level of emergency services typically provided by government.
