Miner Safety Training

Mining is an industry that has been around since the industrial revolution, and despite many advances in technology, it remains a dangerous, dirty job. For those brave enough to travel down into mines in search of natural resources, there are some very important safety measures to refer to over and over again to make sure that every precaution has been taken. Below, you’ll find a list of training topics that are required for most Miners.
