Course Description


OHSA is licensed by the Resources Industry Skills Association to deliver the INDUSTRY RECOGNISED ‘Standard 11 Generic OH&S Induction’ which is the training identified by the Queensland Mining Inspectorate for workers on a Mine in Qld. This course covers both Coal and Metalliferous Mines and exceeds most other State mining general safety induction requirements.

It is recognised that many workers within the Resources sector have existing skills and knowledge that map to the Standard 11 Mining Induction competencies. These workers have the opportunity to have these recognised through this RPL program. Candidates must present a variety of recent (within past 2 years) relevant mining industry evidence to be eligible for enrolment to this program.OHSA will contact you upon registration into this course to verify your eligibility into this program. If you have any questions about your eligibility into this program contact our office on 1300 647 200.

Attendance to the 1/2 day course will require the candidate to complete a written theory questionnaire, participate in an interview with an industry assessor, demonstrate CPR and the safe use of a fire extinguisher.  We also offer a 5 day workers package which includes Standard 11, Work at Heights, Confined Spaces and Senior First Aid over 5 consecutive days from Monday to Friday or Wednesday to Sunday weekly. Supervisors can choose to do the 5 day supervisors package which includes the Standard 11, Mining Supervisor S123 and G2 over 5 consecutive days Monday to Friday or Wednesday to Sunday.

ATTENTION: Do your Standard 11 Mining Induction, Mining Supervisor S123 and the G2 courses in a 5 day program with OHSA. Contact our office on 1300 647 200 and save! 

Target Audience

This program is aimed at experienced mine workers with recent mining experience within the past 2 years. If you do not have recent experience you will be required to attend the full induction.

You should always check first with the specific site you intend to work for, industry or State you wish to work in, to determine their specific site or industry requirements.  Like construction sites, mine site also have their own site specific induction requirements over and above the mining induction courses which must also be completed to enter onto their site. Some States do not have any specific generic safety induction requirements and are thereby determined on a mine by mine basis, however this program usually covers many of the subjects/topics required by many of those sites. BMA’s Queensland 8 coal mines (there are over 50 coal mines in Queensland with many new ones being developed) 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. The RISA Resources Induction has been developed to meet the Queensland Government’s Recognised Standard 11 ‘Training in Coal Mines: Appendix 3 Generic OH&S Induction’ requirements for induction training for new workers and covers both Coal and Metalliferous Mines.

Course Requirements

Participants must provide their USI number (see at enrolment and bring along to the course valid photographic identification (i.e. driver’s licence, passport) and a portfolio of evidence of recent mining experience as instructed by OHSA upon enrolment into this program. OHSA will contact you upon registration into this course to verify your eligibility into this program. You must provide evidence or recency and or currency of experience or working in the resources sector on an underground mine within the previous 2 years. If you have any questions about your eligibility into this program contact our office on 1300 647 200. Closed shoes must also be worn and you should bring long sleeved clothing for the fire fighting. Participants should have sufficient literacy and numeracy to read and comprehend instructions for safety at the workplace.
