Mining companies look carefully at your safety training record before they’ll even consider you for the job you’re applying for…safety training is number one priority!
In this course you will learn about…
- Safety Compliance
- Mining Terminology
- WH&S Compliance
- Hazard Management
- Risk Management
- Record Keeping
- Emergency Procedures
- Fire Fighting
- Radio Communication
A safety training course is something you must consider before applying for a job in the mining and resource industry
1. Mining Induction Explained
Mining jobs in the mines can be dangerous, so you need training in risk assessment and hazard management, not only to protect yourself, but to protect the lives people you will be working with.
Do you know what SLAM means, or perhaps LTI, or JSA? Are you up to date with WH&S? Have you ever completed a safety induction training course before? Do you know what causes the most accidents in the mining industry? If not – then you might want to consider investing in this course.
2. Mining Induction course locations
Courses are run in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Cairns, Hervey Bay, Townsville, Emerald, Adelaide and Canberra.
The Mining Induction runs over 2 days, to make it convenient for you if you’re working.
The training is interactive and enjoyable (it’s not like being at school).
3. What Happens Next?
Once you’ve done the course, you are required to complete a number of workplace activities on a mine site as part of achieving competency before a statement of attainment can be issued.
If you’re not employed (in the mining industry) at the time you do the course, you’ll have to first get a mining job and complete the ‘workplace activities’ part of the course before you can officially complete and finish the course in its entirety.
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. 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.

Learn more about the Bowen Basin mining location.
The Bowen Basin contains the largest coal reserves in Australia. This major coal producing region contains one of the world’s largest deposits of bituminous coal.
The Basin contains much of the known Permian coal resources in Queensland including virtually all of the known mineable prime coking coal. It was named for the Bowen River, itself named after Queensland’s first Governor, Sir George Bowen.
The Bowen Basin covers an area of over 60,000 square kilometres in Central Queensland running from Collinsville to Theodore and is dotted with many coal mines operated by multiple mining companies.

Resources and Infrastructure Industry (RII)
Commonly refered to as Black Coal Competency (BCC), the RII competency is one that can be attained by an operator who has previously worked in the industry and has completed a number of operating hours on various types of machinery.
RII competency is granted to prove correct and safe operation of mine site machinery. It is a very useful qualification to have, as it confirms the operator has the required experience and expertise.
You can transfer your nationally recognised civil Excavator, Front End Loader or Dozer tickets only to RII Black Coal Competencies.
