Frequently Asked Questions

A Standard 11 or Generic Induction is the training accreditation you require in order to legally work on a coal mine site in Queensland.

The specific legislation relating to this Standard is the Coal Mining Safety & Health Act 1999 and the Coal Mine Safety and Health Regulations 2001.

The Recognised Standard – Training in Coal Mines was issued by the Queensland Department of Resources and sets out national units of competency that an individual must hold to work on a coal mine in Queensland – this is what is commonly referred to as the Standard 11 (S11) or the Generic Mine Induction.

These units of competency which are set out in Appendix 3 of the Queensland Department of Resources’ Recognised Standard 11 – Training in Coal Mines include (Surface only):

  • · RIICOM201E Communicate in the workplace

For full details regarding the Recognised Standard 11, please follow the following link to the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy website:

To achieve your Standard 11 accreditation, you must complete a 2-day face to face or virtual training course. Both the face to face and virtual courses take participants through the 6 key competencies that will give valuable knowledge regarding common safety practices on coal mines.

To complete the course, participants must successfully complete the assessments during the course as well as provide a completed skills and experience form (with supporting verifiable evidence of previous experience in mining or related industries).

If a participant is not able to produce this verifiable evidence, the participant will be issued a Statement of Completion at the end of the course and given a Standard 11 Site Evidence Checklist to complete. The participant has 12 months to complete this Logbook and return to WorkSafe Connect (note, there is no additional cost if returned within this time frame).

The Site Evidence Checklist process set out above is standard practice across the coal mining industry with sites familiar with this pathway for those participants who are new to the mining industry.

The Standard 11 (S11) is the recognised training standard associated with the Queensland Coal Mining industry. The specific legislation relating to this Standard is the Coal Mining Safety & Health Act 1999 and the Coal Mine Safety and Health Regulations 2001.

Currency of your Standard 11 relates to when you completed either your initial training course or a refresher – ie. If you completed your Standard 11 training 3 years ago then your Standard 11 remains current.

As set out in the Recognised Standard, each ‘coal mine worker must hold the Standard 11 qualification and this qualification must then be refreshed under the mine training scheme at least once in every five years’.
