Generic Induction: Your First Step To Cleanskin Mining Jobs 

Generic InductionGeneric induction training is considered a vital part of work at all mines, so much so that it is one of the first things mining companies will look for on the resume of a potential employee.  If you are trying to get “cleanskin”ť work in the mines, having a completed induction training course on your resume will give you a decided advantage as it shows that you have proper training in mine safety. 

Safety is a primary concern in mining.  Mine work is inherently dangerous and so all miners and their employers are required to adhere to strict health and safety guidelines in order to prevent accident and injury.  This is particularly important to mining companies, as the industry is profit driven and only a productive mine can remain profitable. 

Since mining companies are still required to pay workers who are disabled due to injury, failure to comply with safety standards can cost them a lot of money as well as lost productivity.  That`s why training in generic induction is so very important.  It can mean the difference between a productive mine and one that is brought to a standstill. 

Fortunately, Australia has one of the highest safety rankings in the world.  Safety has always been a primary concern here and as a result, there are any number of training courses offered throughout the country.  This makes it even easier for you to get the training you need in a timeframe that fits your schedule. 

Most companies that provide training offer comprehensive study in generic induction.  That means covering everything from understanding and abiding by OHS best practices to learning how to administer basic first aid in the case of an emergency.  You can get certified in induction for coal mines specifically or get broader training that covers all kinds of mines. 

Courses are conducted by experienced instructors who can ensure that you get all of the health and safety training you require to improve your chances of gaining employment in the mines, all at affordable prices and on flexible dates, so you can fit your training around your current work schedule. 

Why bother taking a generic induction course?  Having this training makes you a more informed and safer employee and makes you much more attractive to potential employers.  Mining companies want employees that they can trust, whether they`re working in surface operations or below ground, so the mine can continue to run safely and smoothly. 

Taking a professional induction course can help you to send out the right message.  When they see your resume, potential employers will know you are just the type of person they are looking for and will be more willing to take a chance on you.  So if you want to get your foot in the door of the mining industry, start by making sure you have the safety training that the job requires.  It`s a decision you`ll never regret!iminco logo
