Satisfying Both Part 46 and Part 48 Requirements- Independent Contractors
MSHA will allow independent contractors who work at both Part 46 and Part 48 surface mining operations to comply with the training requirements of Part 48, instead of complying with both training rules. This will eliminate the need for developing two training plans and complying with two record-keeping requirements. These contractors may choose to comply with the New Miner, Experienced Miner, Task, and Annual Refresher Training programs of Part 48 to satisfy the training requirements for both regulations. Independent contractors who choose to follow this policy must have their own Part 48 training plan approved by MSHA.
Part 46 defines construction workers who are exposed to hazards of mining operations as miners. Independent contractors who perform construction work on Part 46 properties may train under their own approved Part 48 training plan to satisfy the Part 46 requirement for training construction workers who are exposed to hazards of mining operations.
Operators, at Part 46 operations, remain responsible for ensuring that Site-specific Hazard Awareness Training (Section 46.11) is provided to these contractors.
As far as paperwork that a Contractor should have available while on a mine site are:
- Legal ID
- Current and updated Training Plan for Part 46. Part 48 Training Plan would also need to have the Approval Letter from the District Manager.
- Part 47 Haz-Com Program, Inventory, MSDS / SDS Sheets for any and all hazardous materials on site.
- Current Training Records for all employees on site or those who may be on site.
- Current electrical test if applicable.
- First aid training certificates if applicable.
- Emergency Phone list.
- Work Place Examinations for all active work areas.
- Equipment Pre Op Inspections.
- Fire Extinguisher inspections for yearly and monthly examinations.
- Hearing Conservation Program / Respiratory Protection Program if applicable.
- Most recent Quarterly Reports for the last 4 Qtrs.
