For Your Information:

MSHA metal/nonmetal and coal standards require first aid training.

  • 30 CFR 56/57.18010 requires that persons capable of providing first aid be available on all shifts, and first aid training shall be made available to all interested miners. 
  • 30 CFR 77.1703 requires that mine operators conduct first aid training courses for selected supervisory employees at the mine. 
  • 30 CFR 75.1713 requires that selected agents of the operator shall be trained in first aid and first aid training shall be made available to all miners. 

Things to consider when determining compliance:

  • Is a person present on each shift who has first aid training?
    • Is the person's training up-to-date?
    • Is the person trained in patient assessment, CPR, controlling bleeding, and in treating shock, wounds burns, and musculoskeletal injuries?
  • Has first aid training been made available to all interested miners?
