MSHA Safety Training

Your Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) Safety Training Consultants in Minnesota, Fargo, Sioux Falls and Wisconsin

Our MSHA safety training is about getting hands-on, at your location of choice—in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and the Fargo and Sioux Falls areas—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 generic training 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 with impactful MSHA safety training.

What’s Unique About OECS MSHA Safety Training and Support

As with all our safety clients, we customize your mine safety 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—to provide quality MSHA safety training. This is where OECS excels.
