SHMS Services

An effective Safety and Health Management System (SHMS) is a dynamic system; when implemented it ensures risks to coal mine workers is at an acceptable level and aims to improve safety and health standards of the workplace continuously. Mine Training Solutions believes protecting the safety and health of coal mine workers and persons who may be affected by coal mining operations is of extreme importance.  A well-developed and implemented SHMS is crucial to achieving this. MTS provides services to establish and implement the mines SHMS.

Mine Induction Program

Effectively implementing the safety health management system starts the moment a coal mine worker walks into the training room to attend the mines induction program.

Stage one of the mine site induction is to provide the coal mine worker with an overview of the mine, the risk management processes used and a summary of the safety health management system and its key components.  This can be presented as the mine site's Induction Handbook.

Stage Two is assessment against the mines SHMS.  Inductees are trained and assessed against the procedures relevant to their position on site.

MTS can build the mine's induction program including Induction Handbook, induction assessment and training materials underpinning each safety health management system procedure (PHMPs/SOPs/HMPs).


Rehabilitation & Return To Work System

Workplace rehabilitation is a strategy to maximise an individual’s potential for the return to work.  Its focus is on returning the injured worker to safe, suitable work at the earliest possible time.  When implemented effectively, there are many benefits for the injured worker and the employer.
