WorkSafe Connect has been delivering induction programs for over 10 years and is one of Queensland’s leading suppliers of the Standard 11 (S11) generic
induction full and refresher Surface Coal programs.
This 2-day entry level course provides participants with the skills and knowledge required to work on a surface coal mine site in Qld. The course takes
participants through the 6 key competencies that will give valuable knowledge regarding common safety practices of coal mines.
The program is made up of the following 6 nationally accredited units of competency (which are recognised by the QLD Department of Mines as the core S11 modules):
RIICOM201D Communicate in the workplace
RIIGOV201D Comply with site work processes/procedures
RIIWHS201D Work safely and follow WHS policies and procedures
RIIRIS201D Conduct local risk control
RIIERR205D Apply initial response First Aid
RIIERR302E Respond to local emergencies and incidents
In addition to safety, our course will run the participants through a brief history of coal mining as well as the future of coal mining. The Standard 11
(S11) Training Course run in Brisbane, Townsville, or Onsite will give you all the basic information required to keep you safe on coal Mines and allow
participants to gain access to Coal Mines in Queensland.
In order 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 Logbook 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).
Upon successful completion of the course requirements (including evidence of previous experience or completion of a Logbook), the participant will receive
a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment in both electronic and hard copy form as well as a credit card sized ‘Competency ID Card’.
WorkSafe Connect offers both the full course which requires 2 days of training as well as a refresher course which takes 1 day of training. Both the Standard
11 full course and Standard 11 refresher course are run often, so your training could take place this week.

Faqs Standard 11 Generic Coal Induction (GI) - Surface
Why do I need to do the GI /Standard 11 Induction?
You will need to do the GI/Standard 11 if you want to work in the Queensland Coal Mining Industry.
The Coal Mine Safety and Health Regulations 2001 requires that each ‘coal mine worker hold the Standard 11 qualification and that this qualification is
updated by refresher training under the mine training scheme at least once in every five years’.
Why should I do this course with WorkSafe Connect?
WorkSafe Connect is one of Queensland’s leading providers of the Standard 11 Generic Induction Coal Surface Program.
Our custom program focusses on safety leadership, problem solving and decision-making skills in situations of hazard identification and risk management
and is facilitated by experienced, award winning and engaging trainers.
Regardless of your background and experience we will work with you to identify the best pathway to completing this course and offer this program weekly
in Brisbane and Townsville as well as onsite.
I do not know which site I will be on, how can I be sure your induction is suitable for my work site?
If you are heading to a specific mine site then we do recommend to all participants to contact the mine site in advance regarding what entry requirements
While the Generic Induction has been a recognised industry standard for almost 20 years and aligns with Queensland-specific regulatory requirements for
anyone working in, or wishing to work in, the Queensland coal mining industry, we do note that there are a limited number of mine sites (including
those run by BMA) that do have a standalone Generic Induction Courses.
If you have any questions regarding what course is the right one for you then please call us and we will be happy to work with you to make sure the course
is suitable for your requirements.
