EKpass Commissioned To Perform In Depth Assessment Of Shovel Operator Training Programs And Operations For Fortune 500 Mining Company At One Of The World’s Largest Open Pit Mines

 

January, 2012

 

EKpass is pleased to report that we have recently completed a complete assessment of electric shovel training programs and operations for one of North America’s largest producers of copper. This was performed at more than one mine, including one of the largest open-pit mines in the world.

 

This engagement included an in depth review of all existing training programs materials, as well as assessments of all shovel operators during load & haul operations. This was done with a view to determining what gaps exist in the shovel operator training programs currently in place.

 

Following the research and observation phase of the assessment, a detailed report was provided to the mines to assist them in improving on those areas that were identified as needing work. The overall report also included detailed individual 49 point assessments on each operator.

 

Based on the success of this engagement, this fortune 500 mining company is commissioning EKpass to perform assessments at additional mines.
