Our Standard 11 Brisbane is held regularly and meets the legislative requirements of the Coal Mining Safety and Health Act 1999, Section 72(1), which provides that the Minister may make recognised standards.  These recognised standards provide ways of achieving an acceptable standard of risk for people working in coal mines in Queensland.  Operators can manage the risk in a different way, but must be able to show that the method used is at least equivalent to the method in Recognised Standard 11.  The purpose of Recognised Standard 11, is to assist sites to establish and maintain a training system which includes processes for identifying and delivering competent, safe and efficient work teams.

All coal mine workers in Queensland must hold an S11 (Standard 11) qualification, which is proof they have completed training to the required standard under Queensland government legislation – Recognised Standard 11.

Standard 11 is a necessity for individuals working in Queensland Coal Mining. This course covers the following topics: General overview of the industry, safety, legislation and in accordance with the requirements of Recognised Standard 11 document.

The Recognised Standard 11 document is issued in accordance with PART 5—RECOGNISED STANDARDS and Section 37(3) of the Coal Mining Safety and Health Act 1999.

PART 5 – RECOGNISED STANDARDS

Coal Mining Safety and Health Act 1999 Section 37How obligation can be discharged if regulation or recognised standard made

(1) If a regulation prescribes a way of achieving an acceptable level of risk, a person may discharge the person’s safety and health obligation in relation to the risk only by following the prescribed way.

The Standard 11 Brisbane is a Queensland Mining, Safety, Industry Training Induction Course for anyone transitioning to work in the mining industry and is designed for anyone that has never been exposed to the mining industry before. The Standard 11 Induction was introduced in 2011, which replaced the Generic Induction (GI) Course.  Our Standard 11 Brisbane (Coal Mining Induction Course) are held regularly and is ideal for anyone seeking to gain employment into the Queensland Coal Mining Industry.  It is a necessity to gain employment on a Coal Mine in Queensland; comparatively to a White Card Induction requirement for a worker to work on a Construction site.

The Mining Induction Course, Recognised Standard 11 is designed for participants who wish to train in the required Coal Mining Competencies recognised by the Coal Mining Safety and Health Advisory Committee.  A Training’s Standard 11 Brisbane provides high levels of skill and knowledge by very experienced trainers that have previously worked from the Coal Mining Industry for several years.

Queensland, known for its stunning landscapes and vibrant cities, is also famous for something beneath its surface – coal. The state is home to a significant portion of Australia’s coal mining industry, making it a vital player in the global energy market. So, just how many coal mines are there in Queensland? Let’s dive into the depths to uncover the facts.

The Coal-Rich Queensland

Queensland’s coal industry has a rich history, dating back to the mid-1800s when the first coal mine was established near Ipswich. Since then, the industry has grown significantly, with coal mining operations now scattered across various regions of the state.

Counting the Mines

As of September 2021, there were approximately 50 coal mines in Queensland. These mines were distributed across the state, with major coal-producing regions including the Bowen Basin, Surat Basin, and Galilee Basin. Each of these regions is known for specific types of coal, from thermal coal used for electricity generation to metallurgical coal essential for steel production.

Major Coal-Producing Regions

  1. Bowen Basin: This region, located in central Queensland, is one of the most significant coal-producing areas in the state. It’s home to numerous coal mines, including some of the largest in Australia. The Bowen Basin primarily produces metallurgical coal, which is in high demand for global steelmaking.
  2. Surat Basin: Situated in southern Queensland, the Surat Basin is known for its substantial reserves of thermal coal. These coals are primarily used in electricity generation, both locally and internationally.
  3. Galilee Basin: The Galilee Basin, in central Queensland, has gained attention due to its massive coal reserves. While several mining projects have been proposed for this region, their development status can vary over time.

The Changing Landscape

It’s essential to note that the number of coal mines in Queensland can change due to various factors, including market demand, environmental regulations, and economic conditions. As the world increasingly looks towards cleaner energy sources and sustainability, the coal industry faces evolving challenges.

A Transition in Progress

Queensland is also investing in renewable energy projects, such as wind and solar farms, as part of its transition to a more sustainable energy future. This shift acknowledges the importance of diversifying the state’s energy portfolio while addressing environmental concerns.

In conclusion, Queensland’s coal mining industry has been a significant contributor to the state’s economy and the global energy market. As of 2021, there were around 50 coal mines in Queensland, each playing a unique role in providing coal for various purposes. However, it’s important to recognize that the energy landscape is evolving, with a growing emphasis on cleaner and more sustainable alternatives to coal. The future of coal mining in Queensland will likely be shaped by these changing dynamics, as the state continues to balance economic growth with environmental responsibility.  Australia Minerals Government Department has provided – Map of Queensland Coal Mines.

The Coal Board Medical (formally known as the Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme) protects the health of Queensland Coal Mine Workers, the Scheme ensures workers undergo compulsory health assessments. This includes an assessment when workers prior to entering the industry and then at least every 5 years while employed in the Coal Mining Industry.

The Coal Board Medical (Health Scheme) is not limited to current Coal Mine workers, the Scheme extends to retiring and former Coal Mine Workers on a voluntary basis.

Coal Mine Employers of Queensland Coal Mine Workers must ensure that health assessments are carried out on each person they employ or intend to employ.

This guide explains the requirements of the Scheme, including recent changes made as part of the Queensland Government’s response to mine dust lung disease.

Mine dust lung screening spirometry program

Quality of mine dust lung disease screening

The purpose of the Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme (CMWHS) is used to determine fitness for work, and to provide early diagnosis and intervention for respiratory diseases like coal mine workers’ pneumoconiosis and silicosis. It does this by:

  • screening coal mine workers to detect early signs of disease
  • referring workers for follow-up, diagnosis and management, if required
  • reducing dust exposure for workers with respiratory abnormalities
  • collecting, analysing and reporting data to support reviews of dust exposure levels and occupational exposure limits for coal mines.
