Frequently Asked Questions

S123 is a mandated requirement for Site Supervisors and Site Safety Health Representatives (SSHR) in the Queensland Mining Industry.

The course consists of a skill set of 3 nationally accredited competencies that the Queensland Mining Advisory Committee has identified that a site supervisor or site safety health representatives (SSHR) needs to hold.

The competencies included are as follows:

  • RIIRIS301E Apply Risk Management Processes
  • RIIWHS301E Conduct Safety and Health Investigations
  • RIICOM301E Communicate Information

The Site Senior Executive (SSE) cannot appoint a person to either of these roles without the person holding these competencies.

The Queensland Advisory Committee for both hard rock and coal mining requires site supervisors and site safety health representatives (SSHR) to hold the S123 Site Supervisor qualification.

This course has been known by other names and depending on the industry it may be referred to as G1, G8, G9 or QMS.

Yes, you can.

WorkSafe Connect does offer Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) as an option and you will need to provide evidence to address the criteria for each unit of competency. Based on our experience this process can often take longer and is more expensive than 1 day training course, but we are always more than happy to talk through what option might be best for you.

Please contact WorkSafe Connect to discuss this option in more detail.

Your S123 (QMS) Site Supervisor qualification must be refreshed every 5 years under the Coal Mining Regulations.

Sites outside of coal mining will factor the refresher into their training scheme or standard and we would suggest that you check with the site you are working on or travelling to ensure that you are aware of their specific refresher requirements.

This is the next level of risk management training to the unit in the S123 (QMS) Site Supervisor qualification and involves completion of the following unit of competency:

RIIRIS402E - Carry out the risk management process

Based on experience, we find that some mines will also require a supervisor to hold the G2 qualification which we offer as a 1-day training course.

For further information please see our G2 – Risk Management course page:

WorkSafe Connect’s Virtual Training is live, real-time trainer-led delivered in an interactive online environment.

Our virtual training is the same great learning experience that our face-to-face training is known for, just delivered differently. By way of overview of what our virtual training involves:

  • They are real-time video-led sessions where our trainer presents to the group and guides the students through the activities and assessments.
  • It is delivered via the Zoom or Microsoft Teams platform, which allows students to interact with the other students as well as the trainer (including break out rooms for group discussions).
  • Students complete their assessments and activities via our online web-based Learner Portal. The trainer marks the assessments throughout the session and assists students who need to reattempt questions that were incorrect.
  • In order to complete the virtual session, students need to have access to a computer or laptop (not a tablet), webcam, headphones and reliable internet.
  • Students complete the course requirements during the session and are issued their certificate soon after if they successfully completed their assessments.

Many participants have commented that they actually prefer this delivery method to traditional face-to-face as we limit our class sizes to 8 participants maximum and there are numerous ways in which to interact within the session.

To participate, participants are required to be connected to the internet via desktop computer or a laptop device with a camera, microphone and headphones. Please see the Course Delivery section above for full details of what you require.
