In this project, we extended our training resources with new materials that focus on accessible, app-based technologies to improve instruction and coordinate outcomes assessment for trainers serving contractors and small mine operators. The three aims of this project included the following: Aim 1: Provide app-based resources to enhance training for belt conveyor safety, electrical hazards, and accidents with powered haulage. Aim 2: Increase operators' capability to evaluate health and safety outcomes using a light weight, app-based reporting tool coupled with cloud-based tracking and assessment. Aim 3: Grow a supportive online community for contractors and small operators to share and discuss health and safety training materials, practices, and outcomes.
This project was funding by the Mine Safety & Health Administration.
