Supervision Matters: An Introduction to Operational and Safety Supervision Principles and Practice

Effective supervision is vital for ensuring the safety, efficiency, and profitability of mining and quarrying operations. Effective supervision encompasses the application of interpersonal, technical, and managerial skills, as well as the establishment and enforcement of rigorous performance and behavioural standards among workers. This masterclass offers a pragmatic approach to supervision at mine and quarry sites.

There are a multitude of roles that include “Supervisor” in their title, and the term “supervision” appears throughout position descriptions, work instructions and risk control plans.

But without a clear definition and understanding of planning and executing effective supervision, the practical aspects of this critical activity can be left open to interpretation.

This CPD session posits Supervision as a practical management activity, carried out by a wide spectrum of personnel in mining operations; where a person has direct responsibility and/or accountability for the safety, welfare, productivity, compliance with standards, and output quality of others.

Key principles of operational and safety supervision will be examined, and a new model for the assessment of appropriate levels of supervision for day-to-day tasks and activities will be presented.

These principles will be discussed in a scenario-based workshop format, where participants can discuss their own perspectives and experiences on effective supervision.

Key Takeaways
  1. Key skills and practices for effective supervision of workers in diverse mining and quarrying settings.
  2. Characteristics of effective leadership in the supervisory context.
  3. Self-reflection and discussion on improved supervision for both us and our people.
 

Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for participants with prior supervisory experience in mining and quarrying, as well as individuals transitioning from related industries. 

This includes people in supervisory and/or statutory roles who are supervisors, Superintendents, Open Cut Examiners, Deputy’s and Frontline Managers.

Masterclass #2

Hazard Identification and Risk Perception: A Roadmap for Improved Risk Assessment and Control

Hazard identification is a cornerstone of effective risk control processes and practices. Risk perception; i.e., attitudes and feelings about both hazards and risks, is a key precursor to the judgements and decisions that are made when assessing ad controlling hazards and risk. 

This masterclass discusses the importance of effective hazard identification and risk perception, the behaviours and biases that can result in unidentified hazards and the influences that risk perception can have on risk assessment and control.

Hazard identification is a well-established process within risk management systems in all mining operations, and industry has an extensive catalogue of hazard control methodologies available in the form of codes, standards, and guidance material.

Yet, research tells us that, despite the sophisticated processes and practices organisations employ to manage risk:

  1. Known hazards can be left unidentified and therefore uncontrolled, or
  2. When hazards are identified and controlled, the perception of associated risks can render controls weakened or ineffective.

This CPD session discusses both practices, processes and behaviours that can result in a lack of controls, or ineffective hazard and risk controls, and presents a roadmap for improved hazard identification and perception of risk, with a view to the implementation of effective and reliable controls.

Key Takeaways
  1. Hazard identification is a cornerstone of effective risk control processes and practices. 
  2. Risk perception can have both a positive and negativeinfluence on risk assessment and control.
  3. Key skills and practices for improved hazard identification and risk perception in the mining and quarrying context. 
 
 
Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for managers and supervisors in mining and quarrying who are responsible for, or participate in, operational risk management.

Including those in other roles who have an interest in improved risk management outcomes.
