ROCK TRUCK OPERATION SUCH AS THIS LENDS ITSELF WELL TO COMPUTER BASED TRAINING THE COMPLEXITY AND ENGINEERING REQUIRED FOR MAJOR LIFTS SUCH AS THIS 425 METRIC TON FRACTIONATOR DICTATE MORE INTENSIVE TRAINING
COMPUTER BASED TRAINING MOST HEAVY EQUIMENT MANUFACTURERS AND USERS PROVIDE SOME COMPUTER BASED TRAINING TO SUPPLEMENT “HANDS ON” PRACTICAL TRAINING. BETTER SUITED TO EQUIPMENT OPERATION THAT IS REPETETIVE NOT WELL SUITED TO MORE COMPLEX FORMS OF OPERATION SUCH AS MOBILE CRANES LARGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE MAY BE TRAINED AT LOWER COST PER STUDENT MANY INDUSTRY USERS QUESTION QUALITY OF TRAINING
PHYSICAL ASSESSMENT BASED TRAINING Very successful training for operation of shovels, rock trucks bulldozers and loaders has been achieved by first assessing the eye hand coordination and physical problem solving ability of candidates with little or no formal schooling by using a set of video and computer game based tests High rate of success where traditional training methods fail Pioneered by Canada’s Northwest Territory Mining industry to allow more effective utilization of the aboriginal population
TRADITIONAL TRAINING SEMINARS WHILE THIS TYPE OF TRAINING IS NOT AS COST EFFECTIVE, IT HAS PROVEN TO BE THE ONLY REALLY EFFECTIVE MEANS OF COMMUNICATING MORE COMPLEX IDEAS THAT REQUIRE INTERACTION AND DISCUSSION BETWEEN THE STUDENTS AND THE TRAINER “BEST PRACTICE” TRAINING FOR ENGINEERS, SUPERVISORS, MANAGERS, LIFT COORDINATORS AND SENIOR OPERATORS ENGAGED IN HOISTING OPERATIONS IS BEST ACCOMPLISHED IN INTERACTIVE CLASSROOM SETTINGS EFFECTIVE IN TRAINING KEY INDIVIDUALS IN THE DEVELOPMENT, PRODUCTION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF CRITICAL AND SERIOUS CLASSIFICATION HOISTING OPERATIONS TRAINING FOR THE ABILITY TO PRODUCE “LIFT STUDIES”
WHAT IS A LIFT STUDY? Is it a piece of paper? Is it formal and unchangeable? What should it contain ? –Numbers? –People? –Load info.? –Engineering concerns?
EXAMINE ALL FACTORS SUCH AS UNSTABLE GROUND THAT MAY AFFECT CRANE STABILITY
CREATE THE LIFT STUDY DRAWING May be hand drawn but most of today's drawings are developed by highly trained computer operators using programs such as AUTO CAD An experienced crane specialist should design the lift and develop the plan Depending on the degree of risk presented by the lift and local regulations the services of an engineer may be required
