Online Community Framework: Improving Evaluation of Training and Assessment of Health and Safety Outcomes for Contractors and Small Mine Operators

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.
