Since the industrial revolution, workers' health and safety have become important labour issues. With the advent of corporate governance and the "Duty of Care" principle—a legal obligation where rather than having the company being responsible, the responsibility has shifted to individuals—it became necessary to manage risk proactively. Despite this, hundreds of people are killed each year in accidents at work and at the same time millions of people are injured and maimed. In addition millions more suffer illnesses caused by, or made worse by, their work. Preventing accidents and ill health caused by work should be a key priority for everyone at work. This course provides basic information and risk management tools that can be used by individuals to look after their own well-being at work, or to use as they build a risk management program that will enable the proactive prevention of unwanted events in their workplaces. This course consists of the following five parts. Introduction and Terminology Hazards in Perspective Situational Awareness Risk Techniques and Controls Job Safety Analysis This training course was developed to help individuals learn how to manage safety risks by explaining what they should or should not (often as important!) do, and by providing information to then be able to take informed and appropriate actions. This training is different from formal "classroom" training courses as it provides the individual with the opportunity to pace themselves and try out the newfound knowledge in their own workplace, while having the course material easily accessible as reference. Participating in health and safety training helps you to: ensure you are not injured or made ill by the work you do; develop a positive health and safety culture, where safe and healthy working becomes second nature to you; and find out how you could manage health and safety better.

The work of today has changed significantly from what it was. Organizations have become more complex. Globalization and technology have created both opportunities and new challenges for the employment relationship and how employers and employees relate with one another. This holds true for the mining industry that must also deal with challenges such as volatile commodity markets. While all these challenges can be daunting, the fundamental issues of staffing, orientation, compensation, performance management, etc. remain vital and ongoing factors for organizations to address. In this course, we look at the best practices of sourcing, selecting, and securing employees. This course will be of interest to managers and supervisors who work with recruiters to build their teams. This course will also benefit prospective employees to gain a better understanding of this process. Taking a strategic approach, this course not only focuses on the immediate need to fill a vacancy. It looks at this as the first step in the longer term approach to engage and retain talent. This is achieved by linking the specific HR functions to the achievement of the organization's goals and strategic objectives. Sourcing the right candidates for vacancies used to be a relatively easy process of placing an ad in the newspaper and waiting for the resumes to come in. Both employers and applicants knew where to connect. Today, it can be time consuming and much more difficult as there are a myriad of methods and places for employers to advertise and for employees to look. In this course we outline an approach of planning out the sourcing process to inform potential candidates of the opportunity to generate a sufficiently populated applicant pool of qualified candidates. Once there are sufficient qualified applicants, making a good selection decision is vital. A poor selection decision can have a significant, negative impact on achievement of business goals. Developing a strong understanding of the requirements of the role and using these to screen and then develop interview questions and strategies to inform the selection decision is vital to a successful search. Engagement and retention are increasingly becoming an important goal for organizations. As one of the first steps associated with this, the orientation process starts the employee on the path of becoming a committed and productive employee. Compensation is another area that contributes to engagement and retention. Understanding how compensation is related to the role and that it is fairly established addresses an underlying fundamental issue for employees.

The development of a resource extraction project instantly changes the environment and social context of the area. Even the smallest group of pre-exploration geologists walking through a community can set off gossip and speculation about potential future economic, political, environmental, social and cultural transformations in a community; construction and operations typically lead to significant long-term change. This is particularly true in remote areas with small, isolated communities, which are often the ones that interact most intimately with resource projects. A strategic social management system can help a company think about its relationship with communities, the extent of the risks posed to their construction or operations and can help a company to assess and manage the social issues, strategies and benefits that are important to the project stakeholders over time. This course provides an introduction to the key components of successful strategic social management. It draws heavily on more than 20 years of experience by the MFC team designing, implementing and assessing social management systems and social performance on some of the largest and some of the most complex (not always large) mining projects around the globe. The course outlines the four distinct social management areas and brings them together into an integrated, risk-based approach for managing social performance. Strategic social management requires holistic thinking, collaboration, clear communication, integrated analysis and reporting; however, meaningful results require a detailed understanding of each of the contributing parts.

This course discusses the principles and practice of surface water management at mines. It describes best management practices for surface water management at a mine in order to achieve the following objectives. Control surface water in order to prevent pollution of on-site and off-site water resources. Divert excess runoff that may otherwise flood or interfere with mine workings. Limit infiltration to mine waste disposal facilities to control potential pollution of surface water and underground waters resulting from excessive infiltration. Control erosion of the site to limit sediment runoff that may negatively affect receiving waters. Control erosion that may otherwise cause excessive damage to mine closure works. Objectives All mines disturb the surface. All mines change the features of the mine site that affect precipitation runoff, evaporation, streamflow, and erosion. All mines involve grading of the site, diversion of runoff, and placement of wastes that increase or decrease infiltration of surface water to the groundwater. Inevitably at a mine it is necessary to capture and control sediments and other pollutants in surface water, and build and operate the works needed to comply with regulations regarding off-site impact by surface waters running from the mine. Accordingly, this course is intended for all those people at a mine or associated with a mine who may be involved with or responsible for the hydrologic, hydraulic, environmental, civil, and mining engineering works required to manage surface water at a mine.

This course is intended for a broad-based audience of managers, professionals, students and concerned stakeholders in mining who require an understanding of the concepts and issues of sustainable development. Sustainable Development in Mining focuses on the underlying concepts and issues that apply specifically to the mining industry. Included are the sustainable development concepts of... economic growth that preserves the earth's biophysical integrity; optimization of the societal benefits of economic development; system quality... which systems should be preserved/improved; a more equitable distribution of the benefits and burdens of economic growth ... both within the present generation and between present and future generations; greater public participation in the decision-making process. These concepts are illustrated by numerous case studies and examples from mining projects, and further supported by a discussion of mineral consumption, recycling and resource depletion.

Regardless of world market conditions, to win, sustain, and maintain the right to mine is all about sustainability. Waste water management is emerging as the pre-eminent sustainability issue within the global energy and mining resource industries, i.e. related to the following activities: coal bed methane water (CBMw), LNG waste water, oil shale water, coal mining, open pit and underground mining, natural gas extraction, hydrocarbons, metallurgical ore processing, surface and underground earthworks and drainage, and underground coal gasification. This waste water management course has been designed to educate people from the mining, metallurgical, oil, and gas sectors who have to manage waste water issues associated with their day to day activities. This course will equip them with a basic knowledge and understanding of water management tools and strategies, including knowledge of the common terms associated with the water treatment industry. The course does not replace professional advice; however, it does allow informed discussions with professionals. Traditionally, waste water management is encountered in most energy resource extraction, mining, and ore processing activities. All of these industries are facing increasing scrutiny, regulation, competition for land access, and "angst" from local landholders (farmers) and stakeholders (agricultural and urban development). These crucial stakeholders have the perception of their water resource being potentially polluted, and/or reduced in available volume by the resource industry unless proved otherwise. They are concerned about sustainability, potential pollution issues, and access to the water resource itself. Water is the principal vehicle by which potential pollutants in untreated wastewater can be carried from these industries to local habitats potentially impacting on the local surface areas, the local environment, and underground aquifers—especially where this water is accessed and applied through traditional practices such as irrigation. In extreme cases, the polluted water could impact on human life itself. So, in order to demonstrate responsible stewardship over the water resource being extracted, this course gives a practical framework in order to create a robust sustainable water management solution (plan) that has the components of assessing the: raw waste water quality; final stage target water quality; potential beneficial uses for the water; treatment options to achieve the targets outlined above; and a risk assessment process that avoids harm to the environment while realising long-term sustainable benefits.
