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.

Reclamation technology has expanded from its original agricultural roots to embrace hydrology, wildlife and compliance. Reclamation science has responded to legal requirements, reconstruction of endangered habitats, revitalization of damaged environmental systems, and establishment of wetlands. Reclamation methods are used to minimize the impact of human development from surface mining, as well as in housing subdivisions, on ski slopes, and in highway reconstruction. This course presents economical and successful reclamation techniques that have survived the test of practical application. Many of the techniques are a cumulation of scientific studies and practical experience. It is the authors' hope that the distribution of these techniques will positively affect not only the reclamation of surface mined lands, but will also be of potential service in many reclamation fields. This course is the first in a suite of three courses that focus on reclamation of surface coal mining areas, however the techniques presented are generally applicable to surface reclamation. Topics covered include topsoil salvage and replacement, hydrologic control structures, reconstruction and monitoring of hydrologic features, and reconstruction of topography. Companion titles include Wildlife Protection and Vegetation, and Postmining Land Use and Drilling Program.
