This course has been designed to introduce you to the relevant Queensland legislation, accepted practices, and safety procedures that are used on coal and metalliferous mining sites in order to create and maintain a safe and healthy working environment. This course focuses on the health and safety of all people who work on, visit, or supply materials and services to a mine site. The Standard 11 is the current requirement for anyone wishing to work in the Queensland mining industry. Participants will gain the fundamental skills and knowledge to carry out hazard identification, risk control, use and control of hazardous substances, as well as the skills and knowledge required to escape from hazardous situations unaided in underground metalliferous mining sites.
New entrants will be required to complete a on-site mine verification logbook signed off by a mining site supervisor (in addition to the training component). Students have 6 months from the date they receive the logbook to complete and submit it.
Participants must have access to a reliable computer with email and internet access to complete the pre course online training. Mobile phones or tablets are not compatible with the online training portion of this course.
Licence & Regulatory Requirements:
