The new training modules include visual training with real life workplace footage taken by MAQOHSC from mines and quarries throughout South Australia. The module delivery method will ensure all students and young workers gain first hand overview of complexity of mine and quarry working environments.
MAQOHSC is dedicated to workplace safety, preventing occupational dust related diseases such as silicosis and keeping all South Australian workers safe. This is achieved in part through education and training, increased workplace support and safety initiatives that help reduce workplace injuries, illness and deaths among young workers.
Supporting young workers and helping businesses MAQOHSC is pleased to support South Australia’s Work Health and Safety Youth Strategy 2014-2018, a youth safety initiative by providing the training and education content for the Mining and Quarrying modules that will be available soon.
