The future of the mining industry is inseparable from the global pursuit of sustainable development. The idea of meeting the needs of this generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs has become a key concept in the drive to maintain and enhance industry's contribution to society.
Safety & Health
In recognition of the fact that no minerals fatality, injury or disease is acceptable, the Minerals Council decided in 1996 to take a leadership role on safety and health. The Council made safety and health its top priority, agreed on a statement of vision and beliefs, safety awareness definition and established the Safety and Health Committee.
Minerals & the Economy
To realise its potential, the industry needs a competitive fiscal and monetary policy environment and access to competitive economic infrastructure services. Broad economic policy should be directed to achieving growth, high and sustainable employment levels, low inflation and external balance.
Education & Training
A productive workforce needs to be a skilled workforce. The Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) advocates building an uninterrupted, sustainable education and training pathway to increase workforce participation, workforce diversity and workforce skills, regardless of the business cycle in the industry.
Minerals Tertiary Education Council
The Minerals Tertiary Education Council (MTEC) was set up in October 1999 by the Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) to build a world-class tertiary learning environment for the education of professionals for the Australian minerals industry.
The Australian minerals industry is a powerful and successful innovator recognised on an international scale. Working in this dynamic and exciting industry, you will get to work in amazing locations, enjoy a life of adventure, and get paid generously.
