Learning from Disasters (Approved by NSW Resources Regulator)

Learning from Disasters

This program incorporates the findings from investigations and independent reviews of mining incidents that involved fatalities and serious injury, or where the circumstances presented a significant risk of injury or death to workers or the wider community to ensure mine workers learn from past mining disasters.

Learning from experience, preventing devastating reoccurrences and improving the health and safety of all those working in the mining industry is a profound way to acknowledge and recognise all those affected by mining incidents throughout history.

An interactive timeline of NSW mining disasters from the late 1800s has been developed to communicate lessons from past disasters and conserve knowledge within the NSW Resources Regulator and the mining industry. The timeline links to further information on a selection of these disasters, including reports of Royal Commissions and other inquiries, newspaper and journal articles, photographs and links to websites.

The NSW Resources Regulator has developed a Learning from Disasters training package consisting of three programs to ensure mine workers learn from past mining disasters. These programs incorporate the findings from investigations and independent reviews of mining incidents that involved fatalities and serious injury, or where the circumstances presented a significant risk of injury or death to workers or the wider community.

Leadership & Performance Partners are approved to deliver the Learning from Disasters one day training package.  This program is for holders of practising certificates for any class of mine to satisfy their maintenance of competence condition.

(Approval No. 0004506 )

The Learning from Disasters one day workshop provides 7 hours of recognised learning required for the maintenance of competence scheme, a requirement to keep the knowledge and skills up-to-date of individuals who hold a practising certificate to exercise specific statutory functions in the mining industry.

Practising certificate holders (excluding holders of practising certificates restricted to a specific mine) must, as a minimum, complete either The Regulator’s Learning from disasters one-day program; or a minimum seven hours of other formal learning on disasters for the ‘General WHS’ area of competence during the five year period.

The learning outcomes from the Learning from Disaster training program are:

  • Recognise recurrent patterns of failure linked to significant work health safety incidents.
  • Understand how identifying and managing a principal hazard links to reducing risk
  • Recognise the causal role of human and organisational factors and critical factors play in work health and safety incidents
  • Build an understanding of roles, responsibilities and mechanisms that foster a safe work culture
  • Identify contemporary risk factors and vulnerabilities in your organisational safety   management systems
  • Develop risk control options and strategies that best manage work health and safety risks

Beyond the many learnings you will take away from the workshop, upon successful you will receive a Certificate of Attendance for attending the Learning from Disasters Program stating you have met the requirements of the course; the date the course was completed including start and finish times; Leadership & Performance Partners name and approval number and as the Approved Training Provider.

The NSW Resources Regulator caps group sizes at 25 per session or nominated trainer.  We agree and believe that a capped attendance allows us to provide our attendees with the most valuable experience. This creates the best learning setting that allows us to go through relevant case studies and answer any questions you might have. Our goal is to provide the tools and understandings you need to take what you’ve learnt and deliver it in the workplace, and we believe a more personalised and smaller workshop setting best achieves that.  We will work with your business to determine the groups sizes that will provide the best learning outcomes.
