Australia has multiple large-scale mining activity projects on the go. Each mining site comes with a particular set of hazards that all workers need to be aware of and have training for. From falling loads to exposure to harmful substances and gasses there are many potential hazards on an active mining site.

The best way to massively reduce the risk of these types of accidents is proper training in mine safety. This standard 11 course offered in the Sunshine Coast is taught by experienced professionals at an accredited and leading RTO (Registered Training Organisation) in Link Resources so you know you will be given the best training possible.

Why You Need Standard Course 11 Mine Safety Training

Mining is an incredibly dangerous industry with huge heavy machinery, cramped spaces, toxic chemicals, gasses and explosives so it goes without saying that mine safety training is mandatory for all workers on-site. The S11 mine safety course is a nationally recognised program that comes with its own certificate from Link Resources, an official RTO. This course is mandatory for anyone working in the mining industry on-site. This is especially relevant for the coal surface industry which offers many jobs in this environment. Whether you are new to mining or an experienced worker who needs a refresher course, the S11 mine safety training course will prevent accidents and protect your life.
