Statutory Supervisor Training (S26)
This training is for those whose job role within the mining industry requires them to be appointed to a Statutory Position, which have specific workplace health and safety responsibilities.
Part 10.7A of the Work Health and Safety (Mines) Regulations 2022 [WHS (Mines) Regulations] prescribes positions in relation to mines. These statutory positions are appointed by the mine operator to carry out specific functions in relation to the operations of a mine.
Statutory positions are classified in several categories, with different functions and obligations, and levels of knowledge, experience, and formal qualifications for the appointed persons, with some positions requiring statutory certificates.
For training purposes there are two levels of statutory positions Supervisors and Managers. The training consists of WHS risk management units approved by the regulator DMIRS and aligns to Schedule 26 of the WHS (Mines) Regulations.
Mine operators have a duty to establish and implement a mine safety management system (r.621) and include the management and supervisory structure for WHS at the mine (r.622).
This course will assist those who are required to hold an applicable statutory certificate, with requirements listed in Schedule 27 of the WHS Mines Regulations by giving them the knowledge and skills to be effective in their role whilst meeting the competency requirements to nominate for appointment. This course includes the risk management units for statutory positions approved by the regulator (r. 675ZZJ).
