The Occupational Health and Safety Act states that anyone working on a Surface Mining Site (outside of performing the task of a surface miner) must have Surface Mining Common Core Training. (This also includes organizations involved in activities related to the transportation of stone, sand, gravel and other raw materials from mining pits and quarries).
“Surface mine” is defined in the Regulations for Mines and Mining Plants as “a pit or quarry where metallic or nonmetallic rock, mineral bearing substance, earth, clay, sand or gravel is being or has been removed by means of an excavation open to the surface to supply material for construction, industrial or manufacturing purposes and includes any work, undertaking or facility used in connection therewith but does not include a cutting for a right of way for a highway or a railroad.”
Regulation 854 (Regulations for Mines and Mining Plants) requires that employers provide the following common core training components, which Intola Safety proudly offers:
