The Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia (CME), Queensland Resources Council (QRC) and SkillsDMC have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to identify strategies to source the increasing number of skilled people the industry will require over the next five to ten years.

The MoU involves defining and implementing a national skills policy for the resources sector; providing timely workforce planning data to support skills advocacy functions with state and federal governments; and knowledge transfer for local/state operational outcomes.

CME chief executive Reg Howard-Smith said the Western Australia and Queensland mining sectors were facing a significant period of project development, and thousands of additional workers would be required over the next few years.

“Our ability to source skilled labour will prove vital in the delivery of projects on time and on budget,” Howard-Smith said.
