The mining industry is subject to stringent standards and regulations on various aspects, including the mining process, site operations, and safety. Relevant training is essential to ensure workers and staff have the required skills and knowledge to perform mining operations smoothly and safely.
Training can help in understanding the processes, complying with occupational health and safety (OHS) obligations, remaining up-to-date with relevant standards and technologies, as well as improving safety and risk management at a mine site.
Simulation training is being increasingly adopted by mining companies to virtually train workers and reduce associated costs.

Advantages of simulator training in mining
Mining simulator training sees mining companies use simulators to train operators quickly and cost-effectively, in a safe and controlled virtual environment. Mining operators can gain the required skills and familiarise themselves with the mine site without physically being there.
Simulators can virtually recreate dangerous environments and weather conditions such as brake failures or engine fires, without any risk to personnel or equipment. Mining operators become increasingly aware of their surroundings and safety procedures, resulting in reduced accident or injury rates.
Training using simulators improves productivity as the heavy equipment that is otherwise required for the training can continue to operate at the site. The wear and tear of the equipment are also reduced, resulting in decreased operating and maintenance costs.
