2.1.4. Training Requirements

Training has been a cornerstone in the advancement of a risk based approach. Significantly, a person is not permitted to obtain the qualification or perform the functions of mine manager or Site Senior Executive (the more senior role) in Queensland unless that person has at least an Advanced Diploma level risk management qualification. Similarly, all mining officials and supervisors (defined as any person who gives directions that may affect the safety of another person) are required to obtain formal qualifications in risk management. All mining and engineering qualifications in both Queensland and New South Wales have a risk management component.

In addition, persons are required to maintain such competencies through site based refresher training or continuing professional development programs through professional associations.
