We've just added a new course titled The 5 Functions of a Schedule 26 Statutory Supervisor. This is not a mandatory requirement but highly recommended for every supervisor. It's a 2-3 hour course that goes through each of the 5 functions listed in Schedule 26 of the WHS Mines Regs. It will provide the supervisor with a lot of detail about how to ensure they meet their duties under the WHS Act and Regs for each of the 5 functions. It's a great course with animations, scenarios, voiceover and lots of interactions to ensure maximum learning and retention. Perfect for your training matrix under WHS Supervisor Obligations and coverage of both regulation 39 and regulation (622 e iv)

The 5 Functions of a Schedule 26 Statutory Supervisor

Yes! The old s44 module provided the supervisor with instruction on how to meet their duties under the old Mines Safety Inspection Act and Regs (MSI Act & Regs). Under the new WHS Mines Regs 2022 (WA) supervisors have 5 mandated functions listed in Schedule 26. This course explains how to meet these 5 functions and be a highly effective supervisor in the process

Supervisors must demonstrate competency in the statutory supervisor functions before appointment, regardless of their progress toward DMIRS Approved Units of Competency.

Key points from The WHS (Mines) Regs (WA):

Regulation 743 (2)
A person is taken to be an appropriate person as a statutory supervisor for the period of 3 years beginning on commencement day if the person is a competent person to carry out the functions of the position.
Allows a 3-year grace period for completing DMIRS Schedule 26 requirements after appointment, but not for demonstrating initial competency to carry out the functions of the position.

Schedule 26 (3.3)
Outlines the 5 essential functions of a statutory supervisor, which must be performed competently from the moment they are deemed an appropriate competent person.

Regulations 39 and 622 (1e iv)
Mandate evidence of adequate training and information to ensure a complete understanding of those functions, both for compliance and to minimise risks.

Compliance strategies for companies:
Ensure supervisors receive comprehensive training covering all 5 statutory supervisor functions with documented evidence to verify a supervisor's understanding of Schedule 26 functions.

Both the company and the supervisor can face penalties for failing to meet statutory supervisor functions, whether after an incident, near misses, or DMIRS audit.

Safety risks
Inadequately trained supervisors can jeopardise workplace safety and increase the likelihood of incidents.

Prioritising competency in statutory supervisor functions upfront is essential for legal compliance, workplace safety, and overall operational effectiveness.

Yes! The 5 Functions of a Statutory Supervisor course dovetails seamlessly with the DMIRS Approved Units of Competency. It delves deeper, offering granular insights into mastering each function. But its value extends beyond technical proficiency. It fosters modern, compassionate leadership, equipping supervisors to demonstrate genuine care and empathy by actively listening to and valuing their workers. This holistic approach enhances both safety and performance.

While we recommend all leading hands complete the full Schedule 26 courses, this one stands out. It's packed with powerful supervisor training secrets yet condensed for busy schedules. Ideal for aspiring supervisors or a quick refresher for experienced ones!

Don't let the shorter format fool you. This course is a goldmine of practical supervisor training, distilled into essential "secrets" that make a real difference. It's a perfect jumpstart for new leaders or a potent power-up for seasoned pros.

At NCT, our motto Innovative Learning - isn't just a tag line, it's our DNA. We stay ahead of the curve, and that means not offering mere carbon copies.

We've analysed competitor "WHS Essentials" or "WHS for Supervisors" courses, and found them disappointingly basic - essentially old MSI "s44 modules" with cosmetic WHS rebranding. They lack depth and nuance.

Remember, the new WHS legislation emphasises granular, function-specific supervisor responsibilities. Ask any Site Senior Executive (SSE) or DMIRS official - "functions" aren't just broad strokes, they're the legally-defined, detailed tasks courts use to assess accountability. Both companies and individual supervisors can face prosecution for neglecting Schedule 26's 5 vital functions.

Simply omitting function-specific training modules reveals a critical oversight of the new WHS landscape. We at NCT Innovative Learning refuse to settle for superficiality. Our "5 Functions of a Statutory Supervisor" course delves deep, equipping supervisors with the knowledge and skills to fulfill their crucial responsibilities - and safeguard your company.
