First Response Training
QMRS has been providing training days for Oaky North over the past few months. Delivery of training in firefighting, inflatable stoppings, high expansion foam, CABA operations and extrications have been an excellent source of further learnings and experience for participants.
Planning is in place for the 2017 calendar to continue with the training days at Oaky North as well as the running of the pilot program for the In-Seam Response Course.
Open Cut Challenge
On the 30th of November, QMRS facilitated the Southern Region Mines Rescue Challenge at Yancoal’s Cameby Downs Mine. The day was a great success, I would like to congratulate the site for putting their hand up to host the challenge. It is a huge impost for an operation and it is genuinely appreciated. A huge thank you to the assessing staff for how they have shared their knowledge and experience with the teams. It is hoped that the teams will take this information back to their sites and share the learning to develop a more effective operational readiness.
The 2017 Southern Region challenge is scheduled for New Acland Mine. We are looking forward to bigger and better opportunities for all involved.
Open Cut Emergency Response Training
Open Cut ERT Training has finished for the year with a couple of milestones. With Road Crash Rescue being the last module the Yarrabee students have completed our first RII30715 – Certificate III in Surface Mine Emergency Response and Rescue. I would like to thank Yarrabee Mine for their support in the venture and looking forward to continuing the training in the future.
Skills maintenance training has also finished for the year. Thanks to our clients Dawson, Oaky Creek and Kestrel for their support.

Welcome back to Kirsty Evans after her maternity leave. The station is getting its end of year clean up at the moment, one of the things that gets put off during the high tempo times. I would like to congratulate the Blackwater team on a great year and their commitment to quality training and presentation.
