The goal of the Arizona mine training program is to save lives, reduce injuries, and prevent health endangerment through increased opportunities for miners, contractors and others to receive the Mandatory Safety and Health training which includes mine specific content, improved quality of presentations and added emphasis on additional health concerns. The program also conducts training for:

  • 30 CFR parts 46 and 48, Annual Refresher, New Miner and FA/CPR/BBP training for miners, contractors and others;
  • Prevention of silicosis;
  • 30 CFR part 49, Mine Rescue Training;
  • Cooperative Instructor Training ("Train the Trainer");
  • 30 CFR parts 56 and 57, to improve miner response to accidents involving injury, to medical emergencies, and to provide training to meet the demand for qualified personnel.

Arizona plans and coordinates a Fall Mine Safety Conference annually; it provides the Arizona mining community, contractors, safety instructors and other mining industry members how to achieve safety and health and, reclamation goals even when budget and staffing resources are at their lowest. From cutting-edge technologies to lessons learned, our industry speakers will show you how to do more with less and succeed in this difficult environment.
