Capability analysis of Mining Inpectorates

Neil Gunningham , Darren Sinclair

Research output: Book/ReportReports


The National Mine Safety Framework (NMSF), an initiative of the Ministerial Council on Mineral and Petroleum Resources (MCMPR), aims to achieve a nationally consistent occupational health and safety (OHS) regime in the mining industry. One of its seven strategies is competency development, with a goal of Competency Support: to encourage and promote continuous skills development and consistent levels of competency nationwide, for both the regulator and the industry. The NMSF Implementation Report sets out a three-stage process for the regulator component of the strategy:

• Stage 1: Refine the list of competencies that should exist within the ‘ideal’ inspectorate.
• Stage 2: Undertake an independent capability analysis of the inspectorate, based on the above list.
• Stage 3: Develop and/or deliver training to improve competency where it is needed most.

The present consultancy relates to the first two of these stages.
