Statutory Positions Course

Course Overview

Our Statutory Positions course provides the required Work Health and Safety (WHS) and risk management knowledge and skills for supervisors who work within the mining industry in Western Australia.

The mine operator must ensure sufficient appropriate persons are appointed to the statutory positions.

There are five key statutory positions:

  • Site senior executive
  • Exploration manager
  • Underground manager (non-coal) if the mine is an underground non-coal mine
  • Underground manager (coal) if the mine is an underground coal mine
  • Quarry manager if required under the WHS Mines Regulations (Schedule 26, clause 14).

This course will assist those who are required to fulfill Statutory Positions on a mine site by giving them the knowledge and skills to be effective in their role whilst meeting the competency requirements to be nominated for their appointment.

The eligibility criteria for statutory positions, including the competency requirements to be met before a person may be appointed to a position, under Schedule 26 of the Work Health and Safety (Mines) Regulations 2022 (WHS Mines Regulations) for the remaining statutory positions.

This course covers the two Units of Competencies required to meet the eligibility criteria:

  • BSBWHS513 Lead WHS risk management, and
  • BSBWHS411 Implement and monitor WHS policies, procedures and programs, and
