Frequently Asked Questions

Who must take this training?

Employers, Managers, Supervisors and Employees all have the responsibility of ensuring a first aid program is properly implemented in their workplace and therefore all should take this online training course.

How often is retraining or recertification required?

MSHA requires annual training for both Part 46 and Part 48 Miners. This course can be used to help satisfy the annual training requirements.

OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification for Workplace First Aid Overview. Since there is no OSHA standard dealing with this specific hazard the OSH Act general duty clause, section 5(a)(1), 29 U.S.C. 654(b)(1) defines the standard which provides that:

(a) Each employer –

(1) shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.

A recognized hazard is a danger recognized by the employer’s industry or industry in general, by the employer, or by common sense. The general duty clause does not apply if there is an OSHA standard dealing with the hazard, unless the employer knows that the standard does not adequately address the hazard.

What are the governing regulations?

Section 1910 of 29 CFR covers the OSHA-defined first aid requirements of general industries, section 1926 of 29 CFR covers first aid in the construction industry.

Sections 56, 57, 75, and 77 of 30 CFR covers the MSHA-defined first aid requirements in both the surface and underground mining environments.
