In the mining industry, and on large construction sites, there is one piece of heavy equipment that stands out as the primary production machine. That is of course, the off-the-road haul truck, in this course we will present and review the key tasks that operators will be asked to perform with the truck.
The purpose of this course is to introduce trainees – particularly those people who have had little or no previous exposure to mining – to key pieces of heavy equipment most often used on mine sites and large construction projects. Gain a clear understanding of how these machines work and interact, and common safety hazards to be aware of when working around them.
The purpose of this course is to teach your trainees a practical process to perform a pre-use inspection. This course explains the importance of performing a pre-use inspection, key components common to most types of heavy equipment, and the checks required on each type of equipment.
Before you can operate the highway tractor you will need to be adequately trained and have the knowledge to operate safely and productively. Successfully completing this course will assist you to become a qualified highway tractor operator. Learn the basic skill of operating a commercial highway truck used in off-road construction or mine site applications.
This course will introduce you to a hydraulic shovel and its operation. Hydraulic shovels demand operators who hold themselves to a high personal standard: Maximum productivity supported by a zero-incident rate. By loading trucks safely and efficiently, the shovel operator helps the organization to maintain a high level of production, around the clock.
Mobile Elevating Work Platforms are incredibly versatile machines but they’re also among the most dangerous for workers, because of the risks of tip-overs and falls. Make sure that you are properly trained to operate the MEWP and able to operate in a safe work area with this course.

In the mining industry and on construction sites, the Roller Compactor stands out for its ruggedness and utility. It has tremendous power to compact dirt, gravel, and stone better than other types of equipment. It's tough to beat the Roller Compactor for this type of work.
The rubber tire dozer operator is a crucial member of any team. Because of their mobility and versatility, rubber tire dozers are often seen working in all areas of the mine site. This course will provide you with a solid understanding of their role in ensuring the mine's productivity.
Skid steers can do a tremendous amount of work in the hands of a skilled operator. They can also do a great amount of damage and cause injury if not handled with care and respect. Learn how to be safe and productive when operating one of these versatile machines in construction and mining applications.
Tt is critical that telehandler operators are trained in the safe, productive operation of these versatile machines. During this course, we will discuss the telehandler and the important role it plays on the jobsite. And, we will provide you with the knowledge to help reduce operating and maintenance costs.
Learn how to take a more proactive approach to improve the life of your haul truck tires. Even a modest improvement can mean millions of dollars in savings. This course uses a variety of scenarios and problem-solving questions to help haul truck operators avoid obvious dangers - such as running over rocks, windrows and spilled materials on the haul road.
A significant percentage of fatal accidents involving heavy equipment occur when loading and unloading from a trailer. That’s why the U.S. Department of Transportation mandates best practices for securing and transporting equipment on trailers. This course will cover types of trailers, load capacity, tie-down, and hauling on public highways and more.
