The mining industry has many inherent dangers. Because of this, the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has specialized requirements involving the training of those who work in and around mines. MSHA requires that all workers whose jobs bring them in contact with surface, non-metal mines (sand, gravel, or surface-stone mines) follow Part 46 regulations and complete mandatory safety training. This involves 24 hours of initial training and an 8-hour refresher course each year.

In addition, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has developed a Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) program that is designed to protect employees who work at hazardous job sites. HAZWOPER consists of 40 hours of initial training, with an 8-hour refresher course annually. The HAZWOPER standard applies to employers (and their employees) whose workers are exposed to hazardous substances and who clean-up, treat, store or dispose of hazardous waste. This also includes workers who respond to emergencies that involve hazardous waste as well as those who work at a waste site with hazardous contamination.
