Course Description:

Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions (USA)  has partnered with the Florida Mine Safety Program to offer you an MSHA Law Class & Supervisor Workshop.

All mine supervisors and managers, from the Company President to Front Line Supervisors and Agents, must have a thorough understanding of MSHA rules and regulations in order to instill in their employees a culture where SAFETY is a VALUE. Many Supervisors enter “panic mode” the minute the MSHA Inspector arrives. If you don’t have a sound working knowledge of the Act and 30 CFR, you should at least have the resources readily available for reference, and know how to use them. Failure to do so could result in citations or orders with huge fines, or even imprisonment. This course is exclusively offered by the Florida Mine Safety Program via the MSHA State Grant Program.
