This is the essential safety training induction/qualification you must attain before you are allowed to work on a mine or quarrying site in Queensland. If you’re a process worker, electrician, plumber, fitter, engineer, architect, cleaner, kitchen hand, chef, office and admin staff, driver, labourer, manager etc and part of your job means you have to work on a mine site – you’ll need a Standard 11.

Mine sites are a hive of activity with many people doing different jobs, often under time-constraints which means they are under pressure too. It's during these times that slight lapses of concentration of fatigue can kick in, heightening the risk of accidents occurring.
Because this risk is so high, site-specific and national WHS policies and procedures really hammer home the need to be totally vigilant and work in a safe manner at all times.
Accidents on site can also be prevented by communicating well with those people around you, that why it essential to understand how to identify, access and use work site communication systems and equipment confidently.
Being able to communicate well with your fellow workmates on site, understanding work-related terminology also makes for a more productive and stress-free life in the mines. Your shift will generally be 12 hours or so, so you want to create the best environment possible for yourself and the workmates who share the same space as you.
Be aware, look after your personal safety as well as that of your fellow workers. If you see someone doing something stupid that could harm themselves or others - do something about it. It's for this reason, the Standard 11 focuses on you taking personal responsibility to identify hazards and risks; then taking the initiative and put in place the controls and actions to stop the hazard contributing to an accident.
This includes reporting hazards to your Supervisor/ SSE and filling out the relevant forms as a record.
Finally, should personal injury occur to yourself or a workmate, you will have the skills to apply basic first and complete the relevant incident reports.
Mining is a serious business - don’t become a statistic. If you’re serious about working in the mines, think seriously about how the Standard 11 safety knowledge can prevent you and your workmates from injury - or worse.
This is a classroom-based training course and is delivered using a mix of printed learning material, slides and discussion. The outline of what you will learn can be summarised below.
Completion of the Standard 11 can be credited towards advanced mining training packages such as RII20213 Certificate II in Surface Extraction Operations.
