CSSGA Partnership Training Materials
Since 1995, the Mine Safety and Training Program (MSTP) has been developing new, innovative and national MSHA award-winning, mine health and safety training tools for the mining community. These training aids are intended to provide effective, consistent and up-to-date mine health and safety information for individual or classroom training settings. These tools are conceived and developed through a partnership with mine safety professionals from the Colorado Stone, Sand &, Gravel Association, International Society of Mine Safety Professionals, Colorado Mining Association and individual mine safety consultants and employees.
