FREE ACCESS video : WINNER BEST OHS video 2014 Australian Video Producers National Awards. A practical step-by-step visual guide to the structures, protocols and procedures needed to respectfully help educate, understand and navigate the Aboriginal Heritage Process. The video has been produced with the help of Aboriginal people and industry, specifically for Land Developers, Miners, Explorers, Energy, Oil and Gas Producers, Civil Engineers, Building Contractors, Archaeologists, Anthropologists, Geologists, Government Depts, Tertiary Students and Aboriginal Groups. It's important to understand that some of the processes in this video will differ for some Aboriginal groups. But in all cases, the key to successful outcomes is involving Aboriginal groups in meaningful and honest consultation very early in any development proposal and maintaining respect and understanding throughout the whole process.
This video is an easy to follow template, induction and training tool. It covers the whole process, from identifying who to talk to, negotiating and managing agreements, site surveys, heritage monitoring, protection and Work Health and Safety requirements.

STEP 2: Identify the Aboriginal People of Country and Laws.
