The Australian Institute of Mining (AIM) gained approval to host the Learning from Disasters Training Program, a one-day course developed by the NSW Resources Regulator.

The course examines eight case studies involving actual mining disasters and explores the patterns of failure present to raise awareness of the potential for major incidents in current operations.   

“The NSW Resources Regulator has done a great job with the design and content of the program,” said Roy Walsh, the RTO Manager of AIM.   

The inaugural training program was well received among participants, paving the way for further improvement of the health and safety of all those working in the mining industry.

“I was impressed with the level of participation and discussion generated in the program. Decision-makers and mine managers walked away from the program with a clear path to review their systems,” he said. 

Professor Michael Quinlan, whose work in safety and risk management has been applied to other industries such as rail with great success, was engaged by the Regulator in the design of the program.  

“It is great to see the industry come together to improve safety across the board. In addition to the sharing of expertise from Professor Quinlan, the sharing of knowledge and experience through this program promotes best practice and will save lives,” said Mr Walsh. 

The Learning from Disasters Training Program provides recognised learning required for maintenance of competence for individuals who hold a practicing certificate for statutory functions in the mining industry. It is also a valuable learning experience for mining industry decision-makers.
