Appointed Persons play an essential role at mine sites, by helping the principal employer, manager or authorised person for whom they work to fulfil their compliance obligations under the Western Australia Mines Safety and Inspection (MSI) Act 1994 and the WA Mines Safety and Inspection Regulations 1995.
This course looks at Appointed Persons’ responsibilities, duties and obligations. Participants will have the opportunity to examine the specific Parts of the MSI Act and Regulations that are relevant to an Appointed Persons’ role.
Please note: Under Schedule 26 of WA’s new WHS legislation (in force as of 31 March 2022), appointed roles have been replaced with statutory positions. As a result, we are currently developing an updated version of this course to assist those in both statutory (Schedule 26) and non-statutory supervisory roles to understand their obligations under the new legislation.
Having regard for the transitional provisions, Regulations 742 and 743; Aveling will continue to offer our existing Section 44 course. This course will still provide you with a sound awareness of the responsibilities of a supervisor whilst we transition to the new legislation and new online course.
If you enrol in this course from March 31 2022, you will be provided with free access to the new course once it becomes available.
