National Training Package

Conduct Local Risk Control underpins the unit of competency RIIRIS201B Conduct Local Risk Control  which is a core unit of competency from the nationally accredited RII09 Resources and Infrastructure Industry Training Package.  This course, however, is not nationally accredited as MARCSTA is not an RTO.

This program covers the conduct of local risk control in resources and infrastructure industries and is appropriate for those working in entry level operational roles, at worksites within:

  • Civil construction
  • Coal mining
  • Drilling
  • Extractive industries
  • Metalliferous mining


Inaugurated in 2004 this training program has been designed to take candidates through the key processes involved in identifying hazards and analysing and assessing the risks that they may encounter at their workplace.  The program provides candidates with the learning skills to put these concepts to work by observing actual workplace situations.

Candidates are encouraged to use their observation skills to recognise hazards, to assess their consequences and to develop action plans for their elimination.
