Meyvn is a company specialising in the improvement of mining organisations through training and consulting. In addition to knowing the ins and outs of mining, Meyvn’s trainers know how to teach.
Our specialties include: supervisor training, change management, safety auditing, safety training, heavy equipment training, team building, soft skills training, MSHA related training and consulting.
Mining training done right
We differentiate ourselves from mainstream trainers in three ways:
- We are well versed in the language of mining; this allows us to easily connect with our clients through mining-specific solutions. Our specialists have 100 years of combined mining experience
- We believe in being interactive and innovative. We have studied and implemented adult learning theories and have the data to back up our approach. Through dynamic activities Meyvn’s students are able to make the connection between learning and application, ensuring learning gets applied in the workplace
- We really care about people and their development. We know that training doesn’t end when a course is over. So we strive to be a resource for our students as they find continued successes in their mining careers
Heavy equipment training
Meyvn trainers do not just teach from the classroom; they operate equipment and provide live training. Meyvn operator trainers have international experience and have surpassed production goals in several locations due to their expertise and work ethic.
At an iron ore mine in South Africa, Meyvn operator trainers were able to break single shift production records for five consecutive weeks, bringing the site’s tonnage record of 280,000t up to 340,000t. If you are looking to safely increase production, Meyvn has the resources to make that happen.
Leadership development training
Successful industry leaders need to be able to effectively communicate, coach, train, motivate and provide the necessary tools to their employees. Meyvn’s Leadership Development courses are designed to develop highly-skilled leaders who will contribute to the success of any mining organisation.
Leaders need training and development in order to understand their complex responsibilities, learn about their employees’ needs, recognise and appreciate their employees and create cultures where ideas flow and accountability resides.
The consultants who facilitate our Leadership Development courses have trained, coached and developed hundreds of leaders. Meyvn’s consultants know how critical it is to have effective leadership in the workplace and have spent years ensuring leaders are well equipped to find unbounded success.
Mine safety training
We have workshops on safety along with materials that will allow you to facilitate productive safety meetings in an engaging way. We do everything we can to ensure that our materials make a lasting impression on our students. Our workshops encourage teamwork, provide interactive engagements, and incorporate the most cutting-edge safety activities around.
Meyvn’s Toolbox Safety Guides consist of innovative, comprehensive training packages designed to increase safety knowledge among participants in fun and engaging ways. 104 different topics are available, saving the presenter time and hassle. Many of the guides incorporate specific MSHA regulations so that everyone involved in the meeting can better understand the regulation.
Each safety guide includes a clear set of objectives, an opening statement and an interactive activity designed to increase employee morale, participation and information retention. A Q&A section is also included for the presenter to immediately assess the overall effectiveness of the safety meeting.
Steven Covey, in his book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, talks about the importance of continuously sharpening your saw. There is always opportunity for growth; organisations that seek out these opportunities and utilise their available resources typically lead whatever market they are in. There is power in objectivity and wisdom.
