An ounce of "prevention" is worth a pound of "cure"
In coordination with the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, the Western Mining Safety and Health Training Resource Center has developed this tutorial to outline some of the key topics in miner safety and health. The Center offers a variety of training programs and training resources to help your organization improve training around these topics and many others. Most of our training resources have comprehensive modules on miner health as well as safety.
This tutorial is a useful introduction for those developing new health and safety plans, for those not acquainted with field measurements of exposure-based hazards, and for those who simply require a refresher prior to completing health and safety compliance tasks. It offers a variety of information, including:
- Primers on key training topics
- Ready-to-use field data forms
- Health and safety program checklists
