This is a training course for all mine personnel involved in underground mining.
It provides knowledge of specific hazards associated with powered haulage in underground mining, including identification of potentially hazardous situations, appropriate behavior around transportation, interpretation of transportation signage, and safety checks prior to operation of transportation.
While the mandates of the mining regulatory agencies are law in the US, they are also comprehensive enough to be considered best practice for mining in countries throughout the world.

This course is presented as four learning sessions, using video, text and image content, and an interactive review session of randomly-selected multiple-choice questions. Course duration is equivalent to approximately 4 hours of learning content.
