ETC’s Response to COVID-19

We understand that mine safety comes with its own set of unique challenges: fall hazards, dust hazards, confined spaces, heavy equipment with traffic considerations, heat problems, fatigue, excavation of unstable ground, indigenous wildlife and plant life, and the use and storage of large quantities of hazardous chemicals.

Whether it’s training a few employees in an open enrollment class, providing customized training at your site, or providing EHS consulting services, we are confident we have the infrastructure and expertise to truly enhance your MSHA compliance programs with cost-effective options.

MSHA Open Enrollment Classes

Companies that operate under MSHA Part 46 may attend our MSHA Part 48 classes and receive Part 46 training if we have a copy of your Part 46 Training Plan prior to the start of class.

Custom Training and Site-Specific Training

We can bring one of our open enrollment classes to your site or design a class specifically for your company based on your training plan, SOPs or site-specific hazards.

MSHA Consulting Services

Mine operators around the world, as well as their contractors, have contacted ETC for consulting services such as:

Job Hazard Analysis (JHA)

A technique used to identify the hazards of a specific job or process and makes recommendations to minimize or eliminate the hazards. A JHA can be helpful when investigating accidents and training workers on how to safely perform their jobs.


Mock MSHA Audits

Have you wondered what MSHA might find if they visit your site? A mock audit will help you identify the strengths and weaknesses of your safety program; ensure compliance with MSHA regulations; identify potential hazards and recommend ways of remedying them before they become serious.

Site Safety Program

ETC can help you compile the information needed to create a plan to keep your mine safe - including your employees, processes and equipment. We gather and review existing safety data, interview miners, and audit mining processes and procedures. The resulting plan is designed to meet or exceed applicable MSHA standards.


Emergency Response Plans

Does your mine have a plan in place to deal with a real emergency? Do you have the resources to safely rescue your miners and get them the care they may need? ETC can review your existing policies and procedures, access routes, and available medically trained personnel, to help you assemble a plan that includes the safest and most efficient procedures to deal with an emergency.
