Reviews and testimonials

I have sat through many inductions, but this is the first induction that kept me fully interested. Dennis kept the class fully aware at all times with his knowledge and light hearted approach but was always direct.
Robert, S - Onsite

While theory for me is not the best way for me to learn. Annie has kept the topics very interesting for me to enjoy.
Kenneth - Townsville

As someone without any prior knowledge of the coal mining industry, Phil made it easy to follow the course and checked in to make sure I was all good. Thanks.
Rae J, Townsville

Very good course, good information, tasks, content ect. Dennis is an excellent trainer and goes above and beyond to ensure everyone understands all content and everyone gets the most out of the course. Thank you!

Course Details

The Recognised Standard 11 – Training in Coal Mines was issued by the Queensland Department of Resources and sets out the 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) Coal Surface Induction.

Key topics covered in our course include:

  • General mining overview
  • Legislation and the obligations
  • General safety
  • Equipment safety
  • Personal wellbeing
  • Communication techniques and equipment
  • Risk management
  • Emergency awareness
  • Initial response first aid
  • Firefighting and fire prevention

In addition to safety, our course will run the participants through the life cycle of a coal mine as well as how legislation has evolved and improved due to the history of incidents in coal mining.

Training will be conducted by our experienced trainer assessors who have resource industry currency, strong knowledge of relevant legislation and industry standards.

Practical and theoretical activities enhance the training experience to ensure that the training is engaging and relevant.

WorkSafe Connect offers this course in the following formats:

  • Face to Face – Public Courses (Brisbane and Townsville)
  • Face to Face – Onsite (at your site / workplace)
  • Virtual – Video – Instructor Led Based Training (live)

If you would like to discuss delivery options please get in contact with a member of the WorkSafe Connect team and we would be more than happy to discuss your requirements and preferred options in detail.

Accreditation requires participants to:

  • Successfully complete all assessments during the course; and
  • Provide verifiable evidence of recent experience in mining or related industries along with a completed skills and experience form.

If a participant is not able to produce this verifiable evidence of currency, 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.

Participants have 12 months to complete this Site Evidence Checklist and return to WorkSafe Connect (note, there is no additional cost) and we find that most Site Evidence Checklist are able to be completed in a short amount of time once onsite.

Achieving the course requirements (including evidence of previous experience or completion of a Site Evidence Checklist), results in the participant receiving a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment in both electronic and hard copy form as well as a credit card sized ‘Competency ID Card’ relating to the following units of competency.

  • RIICOM201E Communicate in the workplace
  • RIIGOV201E Comply with site work processes/procedures
  • RIIWHS201E Work safely and follow WHS policies and procedures
  • RIIRIS201E Conduct local risk control
  • RIIERR205D Apply initial response First Aid
  • RIIERR302E Respond to local emergencies and incidents

Under the Queensland Coal Mining Regulations, competency must be refreshed every 5 years.

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
  • · RIIGOV201E Comply with site work processes/procedures

  • · RIIRIS201E Conduct local risk control
  • · RIIERR205D Apply initial response First Aid

You will need to do the Standard 11 or what has been known as the Generic Induction if you want to work on a Queensland coal mine.

As set out in the Recognised Standard – Training in Coal Mines issued by the Queensland Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy, 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’.

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

https://www.dnrme.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0016/240370/recognised-standard-11.pdf

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’.

If you do require a refresher of your Standard 11, WorkSafe Connect offers a 1 day Standard 11 (S11) Refresher training course and full details regarding this refresher can be found by clicking on the following link:

While the national units of competency associated with the Standard 11 (S11) do not expire, similar to other competencies like CPR, your competencies must be refreshed in order to continue to legally work on a Queensland coal mine.

If you do require a refresher of your Standard 11, WorkSafe Connect offers a 1 day Standard 11 (S11) Refresher training course in either face to face or virtual formats and full details regarding this refresher can be found by clicking on the following link:
