Mine Safety Induction

Mining Induction

Here’s how Mining Induction safety training will make you stand out to mining companies:

  • The Mining Induction course is designed by mining employers and follows the Mines Inspectorate directive. This means what you will learn on this course are the skills and knowledge the mining companies want and NEED you to have. Completion of the course will mean you will be educated in mining WHS best practices, keeping you and other mine workers safe from potential injury and harm on a mine site.
  • Unlike many other training courses, this mining induction course (Standard 11) also cover metalliferous. This means you can work on more mine sites and not just coal mines.
  • The training is designed to exceed the safety standards required. We do this to put YOU in the best position to improve your career.
  • The team of trainers have real mining experience which means not only are they excellent trainers, they can also help you understand life in the mines.
  • Highly practical classes meaning if you are a new starter you will be able to apply your knowledge and show your employers real skills which could make a big difference and make you more employable.

It is generally run over two days and in some capital cities on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Special dates can be arranged for companies wishing to arrange a group booking.

Pre-Course Assessment

There is a pre-course assessment to allow you to download and complete part of the course in your own time. This ensures that you’re going to finish the course with a high level of mining knowledge by covering additional subject material. Like construction sites, mine site also have their own site specific requirements over and above these mining induction courses which must also be completed to enter onto their site. Some States do not have any specific generic induction requirements and are thereby determined on a mine by mine basis, however this induction usually covers many of the subjects/topics required by many of those sites. BMA’s Queensland 6 coal mines have their own process for mining and site specific inductions. Should you be intending to go straight to one of BMA’s Queensland Coal Mines you should contact them to enquire about their specific site requirements which may mean enrolling into their own induction program or a mixture of both. We recommend you should always check first with the specific site, industry or State regulations you intend to work in, to determine their specific requirements.

What happens after the course has been completed

The Mining Induction Standard 11 courses will prepare you for your next steps into the mining industry. After completing the course, students will receive a Statement of Completion Certificate which covers the theory part of the 6 units. This will be posted to the address supplied when you register for the course. You will also receive a plastic Mining Induction Partial Completion card (the size of a credit card) with your photo identification on it.

As part of the preparation to be ‘mine-ready’, you will be supplied wtih a Workplace Assessment log book. This log book is for you to complete when you are working on-site as either as an employee of a mining company or contractor. This book will also have to be signed off by your supervisor or person who is responsible for you being on site.

When the completed log book has been returned to the training organisation that issued the Statement of Completion, only then will a Statement of Attainment will be issued.  A new Mining Induction Full Completion card will be provided to you, confirming the theory and practical components of the Standard 11 have been satisfactorily completed .

The Standard 11 is valid for 5 years in Queensland. If you have not allowed your Standard 11 to run out and you have over six months before it expires, you can do a 1 day mining refresher course which will save you a lot of time and money.
