Miners should have a high level of skill and expertise to operate mining tools safely. Using the right mining products and techniques for specific tasks can make the machines last longer. At Apache Iron Works, we offer comprehensive miners’ training. Here are four strategies for improving miners’ training:
1. Incorporate Technology
Technology can be helpful in improving miners’ skills and knowledge. Virtual reality (VR) simulators can allow employees to learn and practice their skills. Mixing holograph pictures and step-by-step instructions could provide an engaging learning environment.
Using augmented reality (AR) can provide workers with a visual representation of the drilling process. This technology feature can show your staff the standard operating procedures and the ramifications of not following the rules. With a simulation program, we can monitor workers’ competence in operating the virtual machine and guide them to hone their skills in a low-risk environment.
2. Assess Employee Skills
Miners can have varied learning styles and levels of experience. We can talk to your staff to assess their skills or expertise in different machines. Assessing the knowledge of individual miners can determine where their skills are lacking. If there are knowledge gaps, your staff could benefit from refresher training.
We can offer personalized training to miners in your company. Our staff can curate programs and training and can provide ongoing feedback, support, and regular check-ins for miners to perfect their skills.
