Industry Safety Induction

Standardised Industry Safety Induction (ISI) training for all new starts to the Industry.

The Industry Safety Induction is a 1 day training course.  All new industry starts are required to satisfactorily complete the Industry Safety Induction prior to working on the development or operation of any Facilities in the Queensland Natural Gas Exploration and Production Industry. 

A ‘New Start’ is anyone who has not worked for at least 12 months in the last 2 years in the Queensland Natural Gas Exploration and Production Industry.

People who have worked in the Queensland Natural Gas Exploration and Production Industry for more than 12 months in the last 2 years can complete an Experienced Worker Declaration Form as evidence that they are not required to complete the ISI prior to starting work. 

The ISI Costs $450 + GST for Safer Together members and $650 + GST for non-members.

A key component to improving the Industry’s safety performance is the competence and behaviour of Industry personnel, particularly new starts.  Prior to introducing the ISI, the competence of personnel varied widely in the industry.  Common core safety competency requirements had not been established.

Many Contractors work for several Operators, often on various sites.  In the past, this led to duplication, cost inefficiencies and potential confusion via mixed messages when delivering safety inductions to workers as they moved from client to client and site to site.


Define a common agreed standard of core safety competence and a set of common agreed working behaviours for everyone working within the industry. Develop common agreed induction processes for assessing core safety competence and behavioural requirements. Provide a ‘ticket to work’ for all workers who satisfy competence and behavioural requirements and ensure that this ‘ticket to work’ is accepted by all industry Operators and Contractors.


The Working Group has published an Industry Safety Induction Specification and developed an associated training course to:

  • enhance the safety competence of all personnel in the Industry to enable them to carry out their duties in the safest manner possible thereby improving safety performance;
  • define the standard of safe working behaviour that is expected of all personnel in the Industry;
  • drive consistency and cost efficiency in delivering safety induction training to all personnel in the Industry.

The Working Group has also published:

Coming Next

  • The Working Group is preparing to launch the ISI in WA/NT.  This will include updating ISI content to make it more applicable to Major Hazard facilities.
  • A detailed Assurance and Administration Plan has been developed for the ISI. This includes: maintaining training records; reviewing Industry Safety Induction implementation data; auditing the quality of training delivery; maintaining and updating training materials; periodic formal review of the ISI.  The Working Group will liaise with Safer Together member companies to monitor implementation of the ISI.
