MISHC professional development goes online

29 June 2020

The Risk and Critical Control Management (RCCM) course which has been delivered face to face by UQ’s Minerals Industry Safety and Health Centre for a number of years now has an online option and will be available from 6 July 2020.

Led by MISHC Facilitators Associate Professor Carmel Bofinger and Sharyn Cobbin, the Risk and Critical Control Management course is the Centre’s first online offering although there are plans to develop online versions of other courses.

Associate Professor Carmel Bofinger said online delivery assists MISHC’s mission to provide the minerals industry with safety and health risk management programs.

“With the advent of remote technology and the expertise of The University of Queensland, it is a very exciting time to be developing professional development courses at MISHC.

“Our new, online version of the RCCM course is a great example of this – it has been re-designed to deliver the same benefits as the face-to-face version to attendees potentially anywhere in the world.

“In creating RCCM we wanted to increase best practice understanding and implementation of risk management and critical control systems across the national and international minerals industry, so this is a great tool.

MISHC Centre Director Brett Garland said the new professional development options enhance the Centre’s strength and reach in the space.

“In addition to taking RCCM online, we are continuing to run our highly successful G-MIRM programs and have recently introduced a new Incident Investigation and Analysis Management course,” he said.

“Our team brings a breadth and depth of expertise in management, occupational health, psychology, physiotherapy, technology and human factors, and that is captured during the development of our education offerings.
