Supervision Matters

Supervision Matters: An Introduction to Operational and Safety Supervision Principles and Practice

Effective supervision is vital for ensuring the safety, efficiency, and profitability of mining and quarrying operations. Effective supervision encompasses the application of interpersonal, technical, and managerial skills, as well as the establishment and enforcement of rigorous performance and behavioural standards among workers. This masterclass offers a pragmatic approach to supervision at mine and quarry sites.

Pavilion 500 Masterclass
Tuesday, 23rd July
10:00am – 11:30am
CPD Points: Certificate of Attendance – 1.5 hours



There are a multitude of roles that include “Supervisor” in their title, and the term “supervision” appears throughout position descriptions, work instructions and risk control plans.

But without a clear definition and understanding of planning and executing effective supervision, the practical aspects of this critical activity can be left open to interpretation.

This CPD session posits Supervision as a practical management activity, carried out by a wide spectrum of personnel in mining operations; where a person has direct responsibility and/or accountability for the safety, welfare, productivity, compliance with standards, and output quality of others.

Key principles of operational and safety supervision will be examined, and a new model for the assessment of appropriate levels of supervision for day-to-day tasks and activities will be presented.

These principles will be discussed in a scenario-based workshop format, where participants can discuss their own perspectives and experiences on effective supervision.

Key Takeaways:

  • Key skills and practices for effective supervision of workers in diverse mining and quarrying settings.
  • Characteristics of effective leadership in the supervisory context.
  • Self-reflection and discussion on improved supervision for both us and our people.

Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for participants with prior supervisory experience in mining and quarrying, as well as individuals transitioning from related industries.

This includes people in supervisory and/or statutory roles who are supervisors, Superintendents, Open Cut Examiners, Deputy’s and Frontline Managers.
