This course supersedes the ‘Supervisors Course’ commonly referred to as G1, G8 and G9 or S1, S2 and S3.
Learning and Assessment
The Resources and Infrastructure Industry Supervisors Course is a suite of three units of competence:
• RIIRIS301 Apply risk management processes • RIIOHS301 Conduct safety and health investigations • RIICOM301 Communicate information.
These units reflect the following:
• Identifying hazards; assessing and identifying unacceptable risk; identifying and recommending treatments; contributing to the implementation of treatments; and reviewing safety system documentation.
• Determining the investigation objectives; gathering information; evaluating information; identifying courses of action; and preparing and presenting investigation reports.
• Communicating information orally and in writing; achieving meeting outcomes; making presentations, and participating in negotiations.
These units of competence supersede the following:
• MNCG 1001 Apply risk management processes (and equivalents) • MNCG 1008 Conduct Safety and health investigations (and equivalents) • MNCG 1009 Communicate information (and equivalents).
These units of competence are appropriate for those working as supervisors or those identified as future supervisors at worksites within:
- Civil construction
- Coal mining
- Extractive industries
- Metalliferous mining.
Code of Practice
In some cases, such as on a coal mine in Queensland, these units are a statutory requirement for a coal mine worker who is authorised by the site senior executive to give directions to other coal mine workers in accordance with the safety and health management system.
There are no prerequisite requirements for these units of competency, however extensive vocational experience in the resources and infrastructure industry would be extremely helpful.
To successfully complete these units of competence, it is necessary that you:
• Have sound English literacy skills to read and comprehend information from a variety of sources and compile documents
• Are able to apply technical literacy and communicate sufficiently to interpret and apply common industry terminology, and interpret work procedures and processes
• Have a range of communication strategies to communicate effectively with people at all levels of an organisation
• Be able to question and listen actively, e.g. when obtaining information of technical working practices
• Are able to write effectively to allow report writing
• Have organisational and time management skills to sequence tasks and meet timelines
Furthermore and ideally, you will have access to a workplace or have experience of a workplace in the resources and infrastructure industry.
Learning and Assessment
ASLS offers the Resources and Infrastructure Industry Supervisors Course face to face in a classroom / workshop type environment. Public courses are conducted at the ASLS training facility located in Brendale (Northern suburb of Brisbane – next to the Strathpine train station). Corporate group bookings are invited and can be conducted either at the ASLS training facility or on-site.
This course of study is conducted over three intense days (up to eight hours per day plus three hours work in your own time for the first two evenings). In some cases, where assessment is not fully completed during those three days, some post course assessment may be required. It is ASLS’s intention to keep the work and assessment required to be undertaken outside the classroom / workshop environment to a minimum. For work undertaken outside the classroom / workshop environment you will be allocated an assessor who can be contacted by telephone and/or email in order to discuss assessment solutions or any other matter that concerns your learning and assessment activities. Likewise you can make an appointment and meet face to face with your assessor at ASLS premises.
All learning and assessment material will be available to you on presenting to undertake the course.
Whilst the course is delivered over three days, you will be given 12 months to complete all of the assessment at which time your enrolment expires. In circumstances where your enrolment has expired, ASLS may choose to charge an additional fee to extend the enrolment for a further twelve months or may choose to refuse your re-enrolment application. Given the latter, you will be issued with a Statement of Attainment for those units of competence that you have successfully completed.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
In circumstances where you believe you can demonstrate competence against the performance criteria, and required skills and knowledge of a particular unit of competence, you are encouraged to consult with an ASLS assessor to discuss ways that you can provide suitable evidence for an RPL outcome. ASLS has a policy of challenge testing all candidates who apply for RPL. The extent of the challenge test will depend on the quality of evidence provided by the candidate to support the original RPL application.
The competency requirements for each unit may be viewed on the internet.
As a Registered Training Organisation, ASLS operates in accordance with the principles and standards of the Australian Quality Training Framework. The ASLS Code of Practice can be viewed at www.asls.com.au.
