Queensland coal mine site operators must manage workplace hazards to an acceptable level of risk but what is ‘acceptable’ and how is this achieved?

That is why it’s essential to do your Standard 11 Brisbane.

A hazard is anything that has the potential to cause harm, while risk is the likelihood of someone being harmed or suffering adverse effects if exposed to a hazard. That is why it’s essential to do our Standard 11 Brisbane.

Coal site operators must put in place control measures to mitigate or eliminate risk down to a level deemed acceptable by the Minister for the Department of Natural Resources, Mines & Energy under Section 72 (1) of the Coal Mining Safety and Health Act 1999.

This ‘acceptable’ level of risk is determined through consideration of the number of people potentially exposed to a hazard and the frequency of exposure.

One such control measure is the Recognised Standard 11 (RS11): Training in Coal Mines.

Our Standard 11 Brisbane is commonly referred to as S11, which ensures anyone working on a Queensland Coal Mine site has adequate, competency-based training before stepping onsite.

I have had so many industry trainers in the last 30 plus years but unfortunately I’ve never had a trainer as skilled and patient as David. I can’t believe I’m saying this, I actually really enjoyed my two days of training under David. We all dread more training but I I won’t anymore. Well done David.Adam Cruickshanks.

I can’t recommend David enough I done this same course years ago but this time round it was a enjoyable experience we cover every aspect and more some. I asked plenty of questions and he’s knowledge was so rewarding I didn’t feel like I was doing a course one bit I struggle to read and write put pen to paper David was patient and understanding. I met some great people as well from all different backgrounds. If I could give David at A Training a 10 star rating I would thanks heaps David.

BELOW ARE SOME PROFESSIONS YOU MIGHT NOT FIRST THINK REQUIRE S11 TRAINING...

  • Cleaners, Dishwashers & Kitchenhands
  • Office & Administrative staff
  • Drivers, Managers & Supervisors

This is because everyone desiring to work on a Queensland coal mine site is required by law to complete a Recognised Standard 11 (RS11): Training in Coal Mines via a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

However, risk mitigation does not cease with completion of offsite training and assessment.  In addition to gaining their Standard 11 (S11) Certificate of Competency, coal mine workers must also fulfil their site-specific induction, complete three (3) safety tags and three (3) personal risk assessments.

HOW MANY COAL MINES ARE THERE IN QUEENSLAND?

Queensland is well-known for its magnificent scenery and bustling towns, but it is also well-known for something under its surface: coal. The state is home to a substantial percentage of Australia’s coal mining sector, making it an important player in the worldwide energy market. So, how many coal mines are there in Queensland? Let us go into the depths to find out the truth.

Queensland is a coal-rich state.

The coal business in Queensland has a long history, extending back to the mid-1800s, when the first coal mine was opened near Ipswich. Since then, the business has expanded tremendously, with coal mining activities being spread over the state.

The Mines Are Being Counted

Queensland has roughly 50 coal mines as on my most recent knowledge update in September 2021. These mines were spread across the state, with the Bowen Basin, Surat Basin, and Galilee Basin generating the most coal. Each of these places is known for different types of coal, ranging from thermal coal used in power generation to metallurgical coal used in steel manufacture.

Significant Coal-Producing Regions

Bowen Basin: Located in central Queensland, this region is one of the state’s most important coal-producing locations. It is home to several coal mines, including some of Australia’s largest. The Bowen Basin is largely known for producing metallurgical coal, which is in great demand for worldwide steel production.

Surat Basin: Located in southern Queensland, the Surat Basin is noted for its large thermal coal deposits. These coals are largely utilised in the generation of power, both locally and globally.

The Galilee Basin in central Queensland has attracted attention owing to its huge coal reserves. While various mining projects have been planned for this region, the state of their development might change over time.

The Changing Terrain

It’s important to remember that the number of coal mines in Queensland might fluctuate owing to a variety of variables such as market demand, environmental laws, and economic situations. As the globe turns to greener energy sources and sustainability, the coal business confronts new difficulties.

A Transition in the Making

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

As a result, both the state’s economy and the global energy market have benefited greatly from Queensland’s coal mining sector. In Queensland, there were about 50 coal mines as of 2021, each serving a distinct function in supplying coal for diverse uses. However, it’s crucial to understand that the energy landscape is changing, with a rising focus on cleaner and more environmentally friendly coal substitutes. These shifting dynamics will probably have an impact on Queensland’s coal mining industry in the future as the state continues to strike a balance between environmental responsibility and economic growth.

Queensland Coal Mines Map is available from the Government Department of Australia Minerals.

WHAT IS A COAL BOARD MEDICAL AND WHY DO I NEED ONE?

A Coal Board Medical is an occupational examination currently required for all coal mine workers in Queensland and forms a part of the Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme.

The Scheme, overseen by the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy (DNRME) and regulated under Chapter 2, Part 6, Division 2 of the Coal Mining Safety and Health Regulation 2017. 

The Coal Board Medical is designed to ensure Queensland coal mine workers are fit for their respective roles and protects the health and safety of all.

A Coal Board Medical will include but may not be limited to…

  • A medical history questionnaire
  • Urinalysis
  • A vision test, hearing test & an auditory canal examination
  • Abdomen, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal & skin examinations
  • A respiratory questionnaire, spirometry test & chest x-ray

A Coal Board Medical is necessary for all new-starters in the coal mine industry with a periodic retest required at least once in every five years thereafter.

Should a coal mine worker gain a new position with a different employer it is not unreasonable to expect that another Coal Board Medical exam will be required.

As a training provider for the Standard 11 Brisbane, A Training does not offer the Coal Board Medical.

A Coal Board Medical is conducted via an approved medical professional under the Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme.

For medical providers who are approved to carry out functions under the Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme visit the RSHQ Government website

WHAT ARE THE THREE (3) SAFETY TAGS?

During your Standard 11 Brisbane, your trainer will explain the Isolation and Tagging procedures in line with the Coal Mining Safety and Health Regulation 2017 and mine site procedures to ensure you are trained to the highest standard.

Section 78, Isolating and Tagging Procedures, of the Coal Mining Safety and Health Regulation 2017 states a mine site must have standard operating procedures for taking plant out of service, controlling the risk of an unplanned release of energy from plant, testing for zero electrical potential (also known as ‘testing-for-dead’), & returning plant to operational service.

This includes the use of the following tags where applicable…

TAG #1 - OUT OF SERVICE TAGS

Used to identify faulty equipment.  These can be removed by any competent, authorised personnel.
Out of Service Tag
Information Tag

TAG #2 - INFORMATION TAGS

Utilised to forward general information about the site area/equipment/plant across multiple shifts.  These may be removed by those responsible for repair, the operator or the area supervisor.

TAG #3 - PERSONAL DANGER TAGS

Utilised wherever possible in conjunction with the worker’s isolation lock when any equipment/machinery/plant is to be inspected, maintained or repaired so that the same cannot be accidentally re-energised by an unknowing party. 

Tags are required to be attached to all isolation points and may only be removed by the person who attached them.

NOTE:  One must always ensure that isolation is effective by testing-for-dead before proceeding with any inspection, maintenance or repair.  A practical exercise will be conducted of this activity during your Standard 11 Brisbane.

Personal Danger Tag

While it is conceded that not all roles will routinely utilise all of the above tags, a mine site worker must be familiar with all of them, which is also covered during your Standard 11 Brisbane Course. 

It is only upon completion of three (3) safety tags, signed off by a Trainer / Assessor, that a Recognised Standard 11: Training in Coal Mines Statement of Attainment can be awarded to the participant by their RTO.
