A Standard 11 or Generic Induction is the training accreditation you require in order to legally work on a coal mine site in Queensland.
Mining is a highly specialized role that carries serious health and occupational risks. Today, mining is one of the most lucrative sectors. And while salaries and benefits can vary depending on the mineral, miners make more money in a day than most people. Mining is a highly diverse sector.
The General Induction Coal Surface program is designed for short-term experienced contractors, inexperienced personnel that wish to enter the mining industry. It’s also for those personnel who need to move between multiple work sites and environments.
“Do you know how to control a risk within the mining industry?”
