What is the average life of haul truck tires in your mine? Probably not as good as you think it should be. VISTA Training's Tire Care training program can help you 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. It also alerts them to less visible hazards that tend to weaken truck tires and shorten their average life. The roles of road maintenance personnel, supervisors, managers, mine engineers and tire maintenance personnel are also explored.

Excellent course- very informative. However, I just have concerns over the certificate issued- there are quite a lot of empty spaces below the training course disclaimer. Is that something that your organization can perhaps have a look it? It works against the aesthetics of the certificate
