Generic Induction

The Generic Induction, also known as the GI, equips coal mining industry workers with essential risk assessment and safety skills required to operate safely on work sites. The programme provides workers with core skills of hazard identification and risk control prior to undertaking site-specific inductions. It also provides core competencies towards accredited training.

Specifically designed for the resources industry, the Generic Induction has been a recognised industry standard for almost 20 years and is nationally recognised and widely used by resource companies, contractors and labour hire firms. The programme aligns with Queensland-specific regulatory requirements for anyone working in, or wishing to work in, the Queensland coal mining industry.
