1997, NSSGA’s award-winning program of delivering
instructive seminars on noise and dust control have been
conducted at aggregate mine sites across the country,
having instructed more than 400 students on this critical
safety and health issue. The 3-day workshop consists
of two days of classroom application, and one day of field
work in which each participant, under real-world
circumstances, conducts noise and dust monitoring and
collects exposure measurements of working aggregate
miners. This is a unique opportunity to learn how to
conduct noise and dust exposure monitoring, record and
interpret results, and develop plans to reduce exposures
below MSHA permissible limits.
Day 1: 8 A.M. - 5 P.M.
Day 2: Half hour before beginning of first shift (could be as early as 4 AM) to 5 PM

The leader in NSSGA’s courses in both Noise & Dust, and Diesel Particulate Matter, is the popular teacher, Rocky McKinney.
Based at MSHA’s Academy in Beaver, West Virginia, where he works as an industrial hygienist, McKinney excels in providing practical guidance in these compelling courses on monitoring for health hazards, and ensuring that class participants walk away with a clear understanding of the proper techniques needed for monitoring; these learnings can be applied immediately upon return to your quarry/facility.A graduate of the West VA Institute of Technology, McKinney received his Master’s degree in mine safety from Marshall University.
"NSSGA’s Noise & Dust seminar gave me a better understanding of the monitoring process, and the relationship of the monitoring to the numbers. Because we participated, we now have the ability to collect our own samples and verify what we think is going on. Among other things, our learnings have enabled our company to plan for future savings of time and money in this important area."
