Both the knowledge and application of safety management systems is a fundamental requirement for anyone working in mining, extractive industries and construction.
The identification and control of a range of safety and health issues facing any business or project, across a broad range of industries, is fundamental to ensuring not only the safety and well-being of personnel but also business benefits such as sound productivity, positive organisational climate and reduced attrition rates.
As a consequence, an organisation will become increasingly robust in response to both existing and future competition as well as becoming aware of the benefits of applying such safety principles in the globalised business environment.
The ‘G7’ program is designed for those people working in the Resources and Infrastructure Industry in roles such as Safety Managers, Open Cut Examiners, Site Senior Executives and members of Management teams.
Experience in Civil Construction, Coal Mining, Drilling, Metalliferous mining industries, Oil and Gas sector or the Extractive industries would be an advantage to the participant.
This highly interactive and practical based program is delivered by professionals with both qualifications and extensive experience in the establishment, maintenance and audit of WHS management systems. It is designed to train and assess participants in the following components:
