METS Tech Talk: Empowering your Workforce – Training Methods and Technologies

Discover the unique training processes and solutions that are embedding knowledge for mining’s ongoing transformation.

The intensifying skills gap in the mining industry has been widely recognised and researched. Without much needed human resources and intellectual power being attracted to the sector, it will be difficult to ensure sustainable competitiveness.

The impact of COVID-19 led to a significant increase in alternative training technologies and opened the industry’s eyes to how quickly processes can change. This Tech Talk explores the key advancements in training solutions and partnerships with academia and research organisations.

In this session, the Tech Talks will explore:

  • Innovative partnerships and collaborations for industry training
  • Emerging technologies that are optimising day-to-day training processes
  • Transforming training with impending digital disruption

Collaboration and efficiencies across training and compliance functions within organisations are enhanced with INX Assessor.

Turning Fatigue Management Training into a Learning Experience for Shift Workers

James Huemmer, Principal, Shiftwork Solutions

Fatigue management training for multi-shift operations is an essential part of any health and safety program and part of an employer’s duty of care.  The challenge is making this information a learning experience and available for shift workers to improve their alertness and live better with their hours of work.
