Training of our employees is a high priority in developing a safe work culture at SRS
Considerable time is spent on additional task-specific safety training, to produce employees that carry out their work safely and efficiently, and arrive at your site ready to work.
All training programs have been the subject of continuous improvement, and are based on developed safe work and risk management practices. It is these processes that allow training to become a cornerstone of our established safety systems, reducing the risks to our employees.
SRS strives to provide best practice training and development opportunities for all employees, utilising nationally accredited training by a team of highly competent internal trainers. This ensures our training is nationally recognised, and meets established industry, enterprise, educational and legislative requirements. This also ensures our employees are provided with appropriate competency outcomes for a satisfactory basis of assessment.

The primary purpose is to give a sentry the required knowledge and skills to safely monitor and control a confined space, to assist them in understanding legislative requirements and identify the responsibilities when undertaking general sentry duties.
Fitness for Work
This training ensures that each individual understands their responsibility to guarantee that they are fit for work every time they report for duty. This means being in a physical and psychologically fit state, unaffected by the use of illicit drugs or alcohol.
Hands are often in the forefront of the specific task being performed and are exposed to more risk and potential hazards than other parts of the body. Our hands are involved in virtually everything we do and at times are taken for granted. Safe Hands training ensures that operators assess the risks involved in each task and know how to mitigate them.
Driving is recognised as a high risk activity and drivers must be aware of road safety at all times. All drivers undertake driver training and VOCs as an essential step in preventing high risk driving behaviour.
Practical training in manual handling assists workers to identify, plan and perform manual handling tasks and recognise unsafe work practices. This enables workers to apply safe work standards and maintain an injury-free workplace.
Job Safety Analysis
JSA training ensures all workers are competent in undertaking risk assessments. The aim is to raise awareness of risk management concepts to identify and correct unsafe actions, ensuring all work is performed in a safe and controlled manner.
All supervisors are required to have the knowledge to undertake basic incident investigations. This training allows them to confidently evaluate, define and investigate workplace incidents, identify causes, implement corrective actions and report findings in an organised format.
LRTs and Liner handlers
SRS has extensive knowledge and use of RME mill relining systems and delivers the latest training and VOCs to employees for all mill relining equipment from certified trainers and assessors.
All reliners undergo training for a large range of hydraulic and pneumatic torque units from Norbar, Torcup and RAD Torque systems. This helps maintain high standards of workmanship for every bolt fastening application, resulting in reduced mill bolt breakages.

During relines seized components are removed using Oxy-Acetylene. All operators are trained in safe procedures, and the use of oxy acetylene equipment including safe work practices, equipment set up, handling and operation. This includes hot work permit and confined space safety requirements.
All reliners are required to have a good level of understanding in the safe use of angle grinders and demonstrate competency in selecting the required PPE, conducting inspections, awareness of the hazards and risks involved, fitting grinding wheels correctly and the ability to use angle grinders safely.
Workers may be confronted with emergency situations therefore fire and safety training is of paramount importance. The impact of a crisis can be substantially reduced when people are trained to respond appropriately. Certified trainers provide theory and hands-on training to ensure that workers are proficient in the use of portable firefighting equipment.
