Course Overview

The Standard 11 is the current requirement for anyone working in the Queensland coal mining industry and represents the minimum standard for meeting health and safety obligations in the coal mining industry in Queensland. Standard 11 is primarily designed for short term contractors who need to move between multiple sites and have current industry experience relevant to their role. Skills that are fundamentally important to the mining industry such as hazard identification, risk control, isolation and tagging, communication, manual handling, use and control of hazardous substances (and others) are an integral part of the Standard 11 course. Workshop activities will provide participants with opportunity to develop those skills to this standard.
