Suncor Implements the TruckLogic™ Training SystemVISTA Training
Suncor Energy realized significant gains in the effectiveness of its haul truck operator training at its mines in the Alberta, Canada oil sands using an innovative training curriculum called TruckLogic™, which was designed and developed by VISTA Training.
During a four-month pilot program conducted in 2010, trainees in the pilot group had 50% fewer incidents compared to new hires trained using the existing training methods, and productivity increased 3.5%. This curriculum has since been expanded to the other two shifts at the mine, and is used to train all new haul truck operators. This 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.
