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 new starters to work on a mine in Qld. The Standard 11 Mining Induction exceeds most other State mining general safety induction requirements.

We deliver this recognised 1 day underground elective mining induction course usually every Wednesday fortnight after the 2 day Standard 11 Surface induction in Brisbane. See our training calender to find the next course in your location. 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 course is aimed for new-starters. If you already have recent resource underground mining experience you should consider the RPL Standard 11 Underground Course option. Contact our office on 1300 647 200 for this.

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 induction 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 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.

Course Requirements

Students must have first completed the Standard 11 Surface Mining Induction program prior to enrolling into this 1 Day underground elective. See our website about the Standard 11 Surface Induction program and locations and dates.

Assessments and Awards

Participants who demonstrate competency by passing both the theory and practical assessments will receive a Statement of Attainment in completion of the RISA Standard 11 Mining Induction – Underground Mining.

Students will receive a Statement of Completion Certificate for the theory components of the one (1) elective unit either at the course or usually within 1-2 business days of the course completion and a colour plastic RISA Mining Induction Partial Completion card with the student’s photo identification.
