It is the objective of MINE SERVICE that all projects undertaken are built in accordance with the customers’ schedule, quality requirements and descriptions specified. To insure excellence and consistent work performance on any project undertaken, MINE SERVICE provides a safe and stable working environment for all employees. Safety is the main priority at MINE SERVICE.

To meet and exceed the goals of excellence and profitability, a rigid hands-on safety and maintenance program is provided by MINE SERVICE. Employees are constantly trained and instructed that safety is of the utmost concern and that safety is a personal and individual position that will not be compromised.

MINE SERVICE requires safety training for a new employee before that employee is allowed to begin work at any project location. This is accomplished by the following methods of instruction:

  • MINE SERVICE SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
  • DRUG TESTING
  • SITE SPECIFIC TRAINING
  • HAZARD COMMUNICATION (MSDS)
  • TASK TRAINING ON ANY AND ALL EQUIPMENT TO BE USED
  • JOB SAFETY ANALYSIS (JSA)
  • TAG, LOCK & TRY

 

In addition to the required training listed above, MINE SERVICE mandates that certain site specific training be given to employees before they are allowed to begin work. This training consists of, but is not limited to, the following:

  • CONFINED SPACE ENTRY
  • NON-QUALIFIED ELECTRICAL TRAINING
  • EXCAVATION SAFETY
  • ACT OBSERVATION (ALCOA)
  • SMELTER ORIENTATION (ALCOA)
  • SWITCH YARD ENTRY
  • POWER PLANT ORIENTATION (LUMINANT/BECHTEL)
  • HAZWOPER (40 HOUR)
  • HAZWOPER (8 HOUR SUPERVISOR)
  • SCBA (SELF CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS)
  • TAG, LOCK & TRY (ALCOA)
  • COURT YARD ENTRY (ALCOA)
  • MSHA TRAINING (MINE SAFETY HEALTH ADMINISTRATION)

 

Employee training records are checked weekly to insure all training is kept up to date.

In addition to the safety training listed above, safety orientation is given to any employee observed performing an unsafe act.

Safety meetings are conducted weekly for all MINE SERVICE employees or any time a new project is started or a task that has not been performed recently. All meetings are documented and signed by all attending the meeting. Tool box safety meetings are conducted each time an employee is assigned a task.

To insure quality, stability and continuous education for all employees, MINE SERVICE maintains a library of safety manuals and video cassettes. A mutual borrow and loan system is in place with:

  • ALUMINUM COMPANY OF AMERICA
  • VALLEN SAFETY SUPPLY
  • AMERICAN SAFETY ASSOCIATION
  • NATIONAL SAFETY COUNCIL
  • ASSOCIATED GENERAL CONTRACTORS
  • HOLMES SAFETY ASSOCIATION
  • NATIONWIDE INSURANCE COMPANY

 

Employees are provided continuous training both in house and through professional entities such as:

  • MINE SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION (MSHA)
  • OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION (OSHA)
  • TEXAS A&M EXTENSION SERVICE (TEEX)
  • THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS
  • ALUMINUM COMPANY OF AMERICA
  • PEC

 

As indicated by the above training requirements and resources, MINE SERVICE is dedicated to excellence and profitability through constant safety and training of all employees.

To further emphasize, MINE SERVICE’s dedication to safety, all equipment operators are provided EQUIPMENT SAFETY INSPECTION (Pre-Op) forms to be filled out daily. These pre-op inspections are made at start-up of equipment or while making maintenance rounds. Any defects on equipment is reported to the maintenance supervisor.

All equipment is completely inspected and checked by the maintenance superintendent during the week of operation. Appropriate forms are completed, reviewed and filed to develop a history of equipment used by MINE SERVICE.

A daily operation record is also maintained to insure that a 500 hour lubrication and preventative maintenance is completed on a scheduled basis. This is completed by means of a wall chart listing all equipment and by a lubrication decal attached to the specific piece of equipment.
