MSHA Compliance, Training & Auditing
Your Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) Training Consultants
Our MSHA safety training is about getting hands-on, at your location of choice, and at a date/time most convenient for you. We believe that a customized training experience for your company increases real learning for the participants and ultimately will lead to a safer work environment in ways other generic trainings can’t.
Having an on-site MSHA expert work with your team, share real-life stories, and answer your questions in real-time is what sets OECS training experience apart. When you partner with OECS, you add predictability to your mining operations.
What’s Unique About OECS MSHA Training and Support?
As with all our safety clients, we customize your training and audits to be site/hazard specific to your location. Years of experience has taught us that the generic approach does not work. Active miners and outside contractors need an instructor who understands your business — customizing the content, and message to your operations. This is where OECS excels.

OECS has been a huge assistance in helping us provide useful, current, relevant training topics that are somewhat tailored to our work crew and needs. Ari Cook keeps each training session engaging and fun by getting our employees involved. When available, he will add in examples from our facility audits to connect the topics directly to our workspaces to encourage greater discussion about improvements that can be made and the positive things that are being done already. We believe the partnership we have with OECS has helped us maintain a low incident and injury rate within our facility as well as greatly assisted with staying current on OSHA/WSI rules. Their assistance is a vital part of our WSI safety programs each year and we look forward to continuing our relationship in the years to come.
With the assistance of OECS, our employees have become even more safety conscience than ever before. They give us a safety presentation each month along with assistance we may need anytime. We are a manufacturing company and in 2019, we had ZERO recordable incidents! I believe OECS has assisted us in the great achievement.
We greatly value the engaging, in-person monthly health and safety trainings OECS provides our team as well as the on-site facility audits. Providing a safe and healthy work environment for employees is a top priority for our company. Our company didn’t have personnel who were experts in identifying workplace hazards and remediating these issues. Hiring OECS provided us with this much-needed expertise.
We value their engaging in-person monthly health and safety trainings and on-site facility audits. After each audit they give us an assessment of potential hazards we need to address to prevent accidents in the workplace. OECS works closely with our management team to ensure an OSHA compliant workplace.
