MINRES highly recommends giving serious consideration to undertaking the QM1 Workshop.  Its the next step up the ladder and demonstrates clear intent when the day comes.  

It’s a two day course which I guarantee you’ll enjoy! Before the BIG C, you even got a steak lunch cooked by yours truly and fresh from the oven home made scones for morning tea. 

As always, we’re here to look after you. All you have to do is click right here, pop your details in the form provided and one of my wonderful girls will help from there.  It takes less than a minute…

Supervisors on mines employing more than 10 people and where the position is identified in the management structure as one whose duties include allocation of tasks to others, and other supervisors where directed by an Inspector of Mines must have the following three competencies (also known as the S123 Supervisor Course):

  • RIICOM301E Communicate information;
  • RIIRIS301E Apply risk management processes; and, 
  • RIIWHS301E Conduct safety and health investigations.
 
What this means for you: 

You must undertake the S123 Supervisor Skillet.  You can do this by clicking the link above, filling in the form, and we’ll take it from there.  

Heres what we know

  1. Its best practice to refresh this important skillset every five years.  
  2. G789 is not the new S123 (AQF3). G789 are AQF Level 6 units for Senior Management on a Coal Mine. Dont be fooled…
  3. Supervisors have the most important job on the site.  Inadequate or lack of effective supervision is the No 1. cause of fatalities.

“Almost all of the fatalities were the result of systemic, organisational, supervision or training failures, either with or without the presence of human error.” ~ Brady Report

MINRES highly recommends giving serious consideration to undertaking the NEW! G4  Operational and Safety Supervision Workshop.  We wrote it with you in mind! It’s a bold step up and clear demonstration that you’re the difference industry needs to see! 

Stepping up to this challenge shows you’re a leader in industry.  All you have to do is click the G4 link above, pop your details in the form and one of my wonderful girls will help from there.  It takes less than a minute…

One last thing… all that said and done, if you got your S123 from an RTO/trainer who simply asked you to pay here and sign on the bottom line… well, goodness gracious… what can I say. 

Applications Form should be completed in full and lodged along with certified copies of proof of identity, certified copies of educational qualifications and shotfirer licence, (depending on the type of Notice) to the Board of Examiners email address: (BOESecretary@rshq.qld.gov.au).

To fulfill the statutory role of a Quarry Manager at any Tier 2 Quarry, individuals must possess a Quarry Manager Practising Certificate that includes a condition limiting their authority to Tier 2 Quarries exclusively. The Quarry Manager Practising Certificate supersedes the previously required Practising Certificate with specific site conditions and applies to ALL Tier 2 sites.

Qualification Requirement:

PLUS

If blasting is to take place:

A Practising Certificate is not necessary for Tier 3 Quarries, and there are no specific requirements for maintaining competence. However, the operator of a Tier 3 Quarry must ensure that the individual performing the statutory duties of the Quarry Manager demonstrates competency.

  • A ‘competent person’ refers to an individual who has undergone comprehensive training, obtained relevant qualifications, or gained sufficient experience, possessing the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively oversee mining operations at a mine. This definition excludes underground mines and coal mines. The competence of a person is determined by considering factors such as the mine’s location, the complexity of mining operations conducted there, and the type of material being extracted.
  • A ‘competent person’ is required to possess the necessary competence to fulfill the following responsibilities:
    • Oversee mining operations at the site, including the supervision of contractors.
    • Manage workplace health and safety (WHS) risks and implement appropriate controls at the site.
    • Supervise the implementation of a safety management system (SMS), which includes identifying practical hazards and implementing suitable controls.
    • Monitor and ensure compliance with the safety management system (SMS) at the site.

The Practising certificate fact sheet (PDF, 80.43 KB) provides an overview of the system of practising certificates and eligibility requirements.

Please follow the steps below to apply:

  1. Request a login to the Resources Regulator Portal if you do not have one. We recommend you use a personal email address that may not change, unlike a work email address.

The NSW Resources Regulator, in consultation with the Mines and Petroleum Competence Board, has adopted a 3-tier approach with the following requirements for exercising the Quarry Manager Statutory function:

  • Tier 1 – Quarry Manager Practising Certificate attained on the basis of holding Certificate of Competence
  • Tier 2 – Quarry Manager Practising Certificate
  • Tier 3 – Competent Person (no Practising Certificate required)

The NSW Resources Regulator will determine which category a quarry falls into by using the Risk Profiling Tool.

Certificate of Competency and Notice holders are required to complete mandatory CPD hours over a five-year period to maintain their Practising Certificate.

Tier 1:

  • Formal Learning = 45 hours
  • Informal Learning = 45 hours
  • Total Learning = 90 hours

Tier 2:

  • Formal Learning = 30 hours
  • Informal Learning = 30 hours
  • Total Learning = 60 hours

Tier 3: Although a Practising Certificate is not necessary, the legislation stipulates that the Quarry Manager must possess the appropriate level of competence. To ensure competency, it is advisable to obtain one of the following formal qualifications as a guideline:

 
 
 

The Tier of Quarry is determined by assessing the hazards of the site using the Risk Profiling Tool.

The tool has been developed by the NSW Resources Regulator in consultation with the Mining and Petroleum Competence Board and Industry Representatives.

The Risk Profiling Tool enables the user to calculate a mine’s hazard burden and help determine the qualification for nomination as the Quarry Manager.

This guide gives practical advice on health and safety control measures at quarries. The guideline also applies to surface sand, gemstone and alluvial mines and dredging operations.

The guide has been produced mainly for mine operators, mine managers, other persons conducting a business or undertaking, workers and worker representatives. Workers, health and safety advisers, consultants and engineers may also find it helpful.

Health and Safety at Quarries Guide (PDF, 11.96 MB)

Note: This document is designed to guide and assist industry in meeting its WHS obligations. You should complete your own risk assessments and take competent advice when implementing health and safety management systems.

The Safety management kit for small-scale mines, quarries and extractive industry operations has been redesigned to help prepare a safety management system and to help you comply with mine safety legislation. This kit has been specifically developed for small-sized mines, quarries and extractive industry operations.

It recognises that finding and organising the resources for preparing a safety management system can be difficult for a small mine. There is a need to streamline the preparation of safety management system’s as well as meet documentation requirements. The kit, however, can be modified to fit any small or medium size mine and may help prepare the basis for a comprehensive safety management system.
