Circle Safety & Health Consultants offers MSHA Training that will allow your workers to identify potential workplace hazards, reduce the risk of accidents, and ensure compliance with regulatory agencies. Our highly trained and qualified instructors will travel to your office or job site to conduct the classes and then provide you and your workers with documentation of successful course completion.

Contractors working at surface mine sites are considered miners. They must comply with the safety and health regulations of both the Federal Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) and, in Virginia, the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy, Division of Mineral Mines (DMM).
