You may have been searching for jobs related to mining and noticed that many ask for an S11 Induction as a requirement for the job but what is an S11 Induction?

To explain it in easy-to-understand terms it is the mining equivalent of a Construction White Card where you learn certain rules, regulations, and safety requirements specific to mining.

This course has been created as a generic course as each mine site will have specific rules for their site so once employed on a specific site, you will be required to complete their site-specific induction.


The training course is designed to give you the best chance at kick-starting your mining career and covers:-

  • Occupational Health and Safety
  • Emergency escape procedures
  • First Aid
  • Hazard Management
  • Risk assessment
  • Safety documentation
  • Record keeping
  • Reporting
  • Site standard procedures
  • Fire fighting theory
  • Working around vehicles and machinery
  • Communications
  • Team operations
  • Mining terminology
  • Isolation and Tagging
  • Atmospheric testing

The actual units covered in this course are:

  • Work safely and follow WHS policies and procedures          RIIWHS201D
  • Apply initial response first aid.                                                RIIERR205D
  • Comply with site work processes/procedures                        RIIGOV201D
  • Conduct local risk control                                                       RIIRIS201D
  • Communicate in the workplace                                              RIICOM201D
  • Respond to local emergencies and incidents                         RIIERR302D

There are 2 different options for gaining completion at the end of your S11 Induction course with many companies.

The first one is the statement of Completion (or partial completion) this qualification generally lasts 6 months with the ability to gain an extension to 12 months – with this you will be given a logbook which needs to be completed and signed off by a Supervisor on a mine site
