Area of Learning — Learning From Disasters

About this course

Learning from experience, preventing devastating reoccurrences and improving the health and safety of all those working in the mining industry is a profound way to acknowledge and recognise all those affected by mining incidents throughout history.

An interactive timeline of NSW mining disasters from the late 1800s has been developed to communicate lessons from past disasters and conserve knowledge within the NSW Resources Regulator and the mining industry. The timeline links to further information on a selection of these disasters, including reports of Royal Commissions and other inquiries, newspaper and journal articles, photographs and links to websites.

Who should attend

This course is designed for holders of practising certificates to satisfy their maintenance of competence conduction. This training is targeted to practising certificate holders for any class of mine to satisfy their maintenance of competence requirement (excluding holders restricted to a specific mine site).
