Site training evaluation.

Our advisers work with you to assess and measure your site’s training management systems against relevant industry standards and applicable mining legislation.

We confirm that all associated site activities conform to the requirements of the mine site’s training management system. Our advisers will spend quality time on-site with you to gather information for your evaluation. They will use their industry experience combined with diagnostic tools to investigate key areas of your business and will deliver a final evaluation report that divides feedback into the three following categories:

  • Industry Leading Practice
  • Industry Acceptable Practice
  • Opportunities for Improvement

The Process (Time):

The evaluation will be conducted in three stages:

Preparation: Desktop audit conducted prior to site visit (typically two days)

Site Visit: Evaluation opening meeting, the evaluation of site documentation, electronic data and training practices, face to face interviews with a cross section of site personnel, sample inspections/observations to confirm system compliance, exit briefing covering major issues and strengths and recommendations for immediate opportunities for improvement. (two advisors over two days, depending on size of organisation).

Report: Final evaluation report written (two adviser days).

Final evaluation reports will be delivered within 14 days of completion of the evaluation.
