    Abstract

    A model is presented for the effective training of Mine Rescue personnel. Organising effective training sessions for a Mine Rescue team presents unique problems generated by fly in/ fly out rosters and the transitory nature of personnel on a mine site. The selection strategies and criteria for Mine Rescue team members, the structure of training sessions and the overall benefits to the workplace and specific benefits to individuals will be discussed in relation to the current practice of the Mine Rescue Team at Golden Grove, Western Australia. The transferability and application of skills learned in training will be demonstrated with an actual incident within the mine's environs.
