While the risks involved in mining operations can be mitigated by correct processes, the need for dedicated, well-trained specialists in mining safety is growing. As it is, there are roughly 14,400 mines inspected by the Mine Safety and Health Administration each year for compliance with occupational and health regulations. Each of these sites requires the expertise of safety-minded professionals to ensure that every measure of risk avoidance is properly taken.
You’ll complete advanced coursework in ventilation, geomechanics, chemical exposure, and other fundamental areas, learning to design processes and procedures that minimize the inherent risks of excavation. Each course has been designed with the input of experts in the industry and is taught by leading UA faculty members.
This cutting-edge, specialized training can be completed entirely online, making the program a great choice for working professionals like you looking to develop their skills.
