What is SRMS Training?

This course has been developed for all supervisors who work in the mining sector in WA and replaces the Appointed Persons Section 44 Course. It gives you an understanding of your legal obligations, responsibilities and duties under the new Work Health and Safety Act 2020 and the Work Health and Safety (Mines) Regulations 2022.

Like the Section 44 Training, this is an introductory course that does not provide any national accreditation however it provides a thorough understanding of the obligations under the new legislation and may assist in preparing statutory supervisors for the legislation exam. If you require the two Units of Competency required under Schedule 26 for Statutory Supervisors, you will need to complete the Statutory Supervisors Training.

It is strongly recommended that candidates undertaking DMIRS examinations for the statutory roles undertake the SRMS course prior to completing the DMIRS Exam Preparation Course offered by TSA


Mine Operators and Site Senior Executives (previously known as Mine Managers) are ultimately responsible for the safety of all personnel at a mine site however they are unable to monitor all parts of the operation at the same time.  Supervisors play an essential role at mine sites by helping mine operators to fulfill their compliance obligations under WA’s work health and safety laws.
