The Queensland Mines Rescue Service Training Centre has been built to facilitate training of intricate mine rescue challenges, risk management and miner safety in both underground and surface mining. This project is a major win for the industry as the first new Mines Rescue Station to be constructed in Queensland in the last 40 years.
The new, state-of-the-art, 1098m² facility consists of 4 training rooms, office and meeting rooms, lunchroom with kitchen, reception area, washrooms and amenities, oxygen refill room and a brand-new carpark. A 532m² bath house with male and female showering facilities has also been built adjacent to the training centre.
