A new Haulage & Loading technical paper reveals all the details about this innovative training program
VISTA Training Inc. recently presented a technical paper at the 2011 Haulage & Loading Conference in Phoenix, Arizona that summarized the results Suncor Energy has achieved with its new TruckLogic haul truck operator training curriculum at its mines near Fort MacMurray, Alberta, Canada.
During a 4-month pilot program conducted in 2010, trainees in the Suncor pilot group had 50% fewer incidents compared to new hires in a control group, who were trained using the existing training methods, and productivity increased 3.5%. This curriculum has since been expanded to all shifts at the mine, and is now used to train all new haul truck operators.
The technical paper outlines how Suncor implemented this ambitious training program and the cultural changes is helped set in motion, and how other mines can benefit from this innovative approach.
