Abstract: Assessments of accident records indicate the need for improved understanding and competence among underground production and service personnel with regard to strata control, and the associated risks, in gold and platinum mines. The underground personnel most directly affected by strata control risks, i.e. shift overseer level and lower, are categorised by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) at job levels 1-4. Appropriate training courses and material are required in order to improve the competencies of employees with respect to the strata control risks to which they are exposed. In undertaking this study, input from all sources surveyed has indicated the importance of rock engineering training at these levels. Many individuals from all sectors interviewed have highlighted the potential impact of indicated training on safety. A strong degree of synergy was seen between union and industry representatives. International input has indicated the efficacy of outcomes based training applied in mining in the United States and Australia albeit at a more advanced level. The outcomes based approach used by MQA/SAQA is seen as appropriate particularly in addressing the needs of the industry at this level.
