Trainees getting an idea of how it feels to walk around with their CABA units, before going into a simulated underground mine roadway that has low visibility.
Trainees have time with Facilitator to understand how a self rescuer works and has practice in donning the equipment under controlled conditions.
With safety equipment on, trainees complete additional activities whilst wearing their personal protective equipment
Lifeline safety training
In the simulated mine training roadway, trainees follow industry safety practices to learn how to escape using the underground safety line
Being away from your workplace doesn't mean you will be stuck in a classroom for your Standard 11 training. Trainees are completing assessment activities under a controlled environment with equipment often seen at mine sites.
Practice the behaviour
Safety training endeavours to bring trainees from a state of unknown or known incompetence to known and unknown competence. For the behaviour to be instilled and drawn upon in time of need. Knowing how to be a first responder and support the mining industry practices of safe behaviour.
Stay in touch
Communications in the mining sector is paramount for a successful and safe shift. Trainees learn to build their communication skills and this contributes to mineworkers returning home safely.
No matter where you are
Staying in touch with operations means there will be days that you are meeting with mineworkers underground to understand their circumstances that require your support.
With all the considerable number of factors that contribute to a successful mining operation, trainees are given the fundamental skill of being able to conduct risk assessments. This is their contribution toward working safely with other mineworkers and the surrounding environment.
