Summary The catastrophic failure of the Brumadinho dam in January 2019 which killed approximately 270 people has sparked a global conversation around tailings management, resulting in global tailing review to set a new international standard. This course will review the concepts of what responsible tailings management is as it pertains to the mining life cycle. The course will use examples from around the world to emphasize current trends in best practices in tailings management embraced by leaders in the industry.  Duration:     9 Hours Access:       90 Days Price:           $399 USD Category:    Geotechnics Who This Course is For This course is for mining company representatives responsible for tailings management, tailings designers, regulators involved in tailings issues, and anyone interested in the subject.

Risk is seldom explicitly introduced in the decision making equation, despite the fact that risk is often invoked. Many companies and organizations in the world consider risk management as a separate discipline, a sort of auditing/compliance nuisance imposed on them by governance rules or fearful upper management, resulting in the feeling that risk management may not be adding value to their business. Very seldom is risk management seen as an investment to generate positive outcomes, not just to prevent bad ones.  This course introduces a new approach that explicitly takes risks and uncertainties, and the stochastic nature of costs, into account. The new approach presents the concepts of the Economic Safety Margin and Comparative Risk Based Decision Making, illustrated by case studies. The latter is an innovative technique for comparing alternatives and projects at the tactical level.  By registering for certification in this course you can download and submit a data input sheet for a project of your choice to the authors and receive a free email consultation from an expert.  For a video presentation of Dr. Oboni's lecture on Risk and Decision Making (requires Adobe Flash Player), click on: Keynote Lecture.  Authors Dr. Franco Oboni Ph.D., Civ.

This course is about the concepts, techniques, and tools for risk assessment and decision-making applicable to the management of mine geowaste facilities. The course focuses on managing the design, operation, and closure of mine waste facilities such as tailings facilities, waste rock dumps, and spent heap leach pads using risk assessment, formal decision-making methods, and management tools and procedures. The topics addressed are key to the success of mining projects and their impact on the environment, as closed mine waste disposal facilities are new terraforms that will be there in perpetuity. If they are designed, constructed, operated, and closed properly, the mine is justifiable; if not, the mine should not be allowed to open or operate. If the geowaste facility is part of a mine that generates corporate and social benefits and entails risks that are below tolerable thresholds, then the mine is sustainable and can be allowed to operate. If the risks are not manageable, the mine may not be opened. Authors Jack Caldwell   Duration 19 Hours Access 90 Days Category Geotechnics Level Specialize Version Date October 19, 2015   Read More

The purpose of this course is to provide mine staff the tools required to effectively gather geotechnical data for rock mass classification and rock mechanics design calculations. The majority of rock falls in mine operations are structurally controlled. Design is largely controlled by existing structure. It is critical that site characterization be performed so as to identify the structural factors that would affect rock slope angles, drill and blast design, support requirements, resultant dilution and span design, etc. A good understanding of rock mass structure forms the basis of rock mass classification which is used in the majority of rock mechanics design methods. Upon completion of the course students are able to gather geotechnical data, either from rock cuts, drifts or core, and process the information for subsequent analysis. The focus of the course is towards gathering information for purposes of analysis and design. The goal is to use effective mapping techniques to obtain data that can be used as input for any of the established rock classification systems. All of the commonly used classification values such as Barton's Q and Q' systems, Bieniawski's RMR, Laubscher's MRMR and Hoek's GSI systems are covered.

Since the industrial revolution, workers' health and safety have become important labour issues. With the advent of corporate governance and the "Duty of Care" principle—a legal obligation where rather than having the company being responsible, the responsibility has shifted to individuals—it became necessary to manage risk proactively. Despite this, hundreds of people are killed each year in accidents at work and at the same time millions of people are injured and maimed. In addition millions more suffer illnesses caused by, or made worse by, their work. Preventing accidents and ill health caused by work should be a key priority for everyone at work. This course provides basic information and risk management tools that can be used by individuals to look after their own well-being at work, or to use as they build a risk management program that will enable the proactive prevention of unwanted events in their workplaces. This course consists of the following five parts. Introduction and Terminology Hazards in Perspective Situational Awareness Risk Techniques and Controls Job Safety Analysis This training course was developed to help individuals learn how to manage safety risks by explaining what they should or should not (often as important!) do, and by providing information to then be able to take informed and appropriate actions. This training is different from formal "classroom" training courses as it provides the individual with the opportunity to pace themselves and try out the newfound knowledge in their own workplace, while having the course material easily accessible as reference. Participating in health and safety training helps you to: ensure you are not injured or made ill by the work you do; develop a positive health and safety culture, where safe and healthy working becomes second nature to you; and find out how you could manage health and safety better.

The work of today has changed significantly from what it was. Organizations have become more complex. Globalization and technology have created both opportunities and new challenges for the employment relationship and how employers and employees relate with one another. This holds true for the mining industry that must also deal with challenges such as volatile commodity markets. While all these challenges can be daunting, the fundamental issues of staffing, orientation, compensation, performance management, etc. remain vital and ongoing factors for organizations to address. In this course, we look at the best practices of sourcing, selecting, and securing employees. This course will be of interest to managers and supervisors who work with recruiters to build their teams. This course will also benefit prospective employees to gain a better understanding of this process. Taking a strategic approach, this course not only focuses on the immediate need to fill a vacancy. It looks at this as the first step in the longer term approach to engage and retain talent. This is achieved by linking the specific HR functions to the achievement of the organization's goals and strategic objectives. Sourcing the right candidates for vacancies used to be a relatively easy process of placing an ad in the newspaper and waiting for the resumes to come in. Both employers and applicants knew where to connect. Today, it can be time consuming and much more difficult as there are a myriad of methods and places for employers to advertise and for employees to look. In this course we outline an approach of planning out the sourcing process to inform potential candidates of the opportunity to generate a sufficiently populated applicant pool of qualified candidates. Once there are sufficient qualified applicants, making a good selection decision is vital. A poor selection decision can have a significant, negative impact on achievement of business goals. Developing a strong understanding of the requirements of the role and using these to screen and then develop interview questions and strategies to inform the selection decision is vital to a successful search. Engagement and retention are increasingly becoming an important goal for organizations. As one of the first steps associated with this, the orientation process starts the employee on the path of becoming a committed and productive employee. Compensation is another area that contributes to engagement and retention. Understanding how compensation is related to the role and that it is fairly established addresses an underlying fundamental issue for employees.
