Statutory Supervisor Course

Course Overview

Our Statutory Supervisor 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.

A statutory supervisor must be appointed for each:

  • Laboratory,
  • Processing plant,
  • Quarry,
  • Workshop, and
  • Place where the mine operator considers the position necessary to reduce the risks to health and safety associated with mining operations.

A person is eligible to be appointed as a statutory supervisor for a place at a mine if the person:

  • Works for at least 2 years as a supervisor or worker in a similar operation or industry that the mine is engaged in; and
  • Successfully completes an approved WHS risk management unit for statutory supervisors; and
  • Passes an applicable legislation examination for statutory supervisors.

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:

  • BSBWHS411 Implement and monitor WHS policies, procedures and programs, and
  • BSBWHS414 Contribute to WHS risk management.

These units can also be used towards the BSB41419 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety
