Skid steer loaders are indispensable machines on any jobsite. They are valuable because of their versatility. They are compact and mobile, getting into places where larger equipment cannot fit. They use a wide range of attachments from brushes to buckets to augers, which allow them to clean sidewalks, remove snow, move earth, carry logs and dig trenches, fence posts and footings. Skid steers can even be outfitted with tracks that improve their flotation. That means they can work in muddy conditions and on grass surfaces without tearing up the ground. 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. What they do is up to one person: the operator. This skid steer training program shows your trainees how to be safe and productive when operating one of these versatile machines in construction and mining applications.   Author Vista Training   Overall Course Specifications: Estimated length of training program: 1 – 2 hours + final test Number of test questions: 26 Printable Certificate of Completion: Yes Final Exam Feedback report: Yes Version: v2.1.1H5 Read More

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.

Course Structure and Delivery This course will be taught live - virtually, in a group setting over the course of three x 3-hour sessions, with a large proportion of time dedicated to applied and interactive exercises. To allow for full comprehension and understanding, the course will be a blend of hands-on and own-project learning, and as such more than half of the class duration will involve active, applied work within the class. Problem relevancy and solution guidance will be introduced in short 20-30 min lectures, while lecture periods will be interspersed with interactive polling and instructor-led, independent reflection, 1-1 and roundtable dialogues, group sharing / reviews, and virtual brainstorm and mapping exercises. Exercises will include: Roundtable introductions & polling – to help engage the class at the start, and encourage recognition of differing perspectives, knowledge and experiences Brainstorming around project components, risks and requirements  – to help identify scope of a project, as well as increase recognition of knowledge & experience of a “team” Affinity mapping of mining development components – to identify interrelated functions, and understand complexity of the system Flow mapping of the mining value chain Brainstorming identification & dialogue – regarding project stakeholders and their primary concerns, as well as “wastes” within the system Optimization exercises – to practice how we might prioritize work and discover alternative solutions for better environmental performance and social acceptance Small group exercises – to analyze example project components, to help participants understand how to identify the necessary information required for design, as well as which stakeholders to engage, to identify appropriate options to assess for said component Several opportunities for dialogue during and after each exercise Who Should Attend? This course is ideal  for:  Project Managers, Business Analysts, Engineers and Designers – in the mining sector looking to gain a foundational starting point in understanding the complexities of such projects, the associated environmental and social impacts, and how they might set themselves up for success Project Managers – who may be facing scope creep and change-requests stemming from external stakeholders with environmental and social concerns Project Team members – who want a better understanding of how their work is intertwined within the whole project Bundle Series This is part two of a two-part live online course series on the topic Strategic Risk Reduction. The two courses are presented by Karen Chovan and are titled Embedding ESG & SDG Aspects into Decision-Making & Addressing ESG & SDG aspects through Design.

The development of a resource extraction project instantly changes the environment and social context of the area. Even the smallest group of pre-exploration geologists walking through a community can set off gossip and speculation about potential future economic, political, environmental, social and cultural transformations in a community; construction and operations typically lead to significant long-term change. This is particularly true in remote areas with small, isolated communities, which are often the ones that interact most intimately with resource projects. A strategic social management system can help a company think about its relationship with communities, the extent of the risks posed to their construction or operations and can help a company to assess and manage the social issues, strategies and benefits that are important to the project stakeholders over time. This course provides an introduction to the key components of successful strategic social management. It draws heavily on more than 20 years of experience by the MFC team designing, implementing and assessing social management systems and social performance on some of the largest and some of the most complex (not always large) mining projects around the globe. The course outlines the four distinct social management areas and brings them together into an integrated, risk-based approach for managing social performance. Strategic social management requires holistic thinking, collaboration, clear communication, integrated analysis and reporting; however, meaningful results require a detailed understanding of each of the contributing parts.

This course discusses the principles and practice of surface water management at mines. It describes best management practices for surface water management at a mine in order to achieve the following objectives. Control surface water in order to prevent pollution of on-site and off-site water resources. Divert excess runoff that may otherwise flood or interfere with mine workings. Limit infiltration to mine waste disposal facilities to control potential pollution of surface water and underground waters resulting from excessive infiltration. Control erosion of the site to limit sediment runoff that may negatively affect receiving waters. Control erosion that may otherwise cause excessive damage to mine closure works. Objectives All mines disturb the surface. All mines change the features of the mine site that affect precipitation runoff, evaporation, streamflow, and erosion. All mines involve grading of the site, diversion of runoff, and placement of wastes that increase or decrease infiltration of surface water to the groundwater. Inevitably at a mine it is necessary to capture and control sediments and other pollutants in surface water, and build and operate the works needed to comply with regulations regarding off-site impact by surface waters running from the mine. Accordingly, this course is intended for all those people at a mine or associated with a mine who may be involved with or responsible for the hydrologic, hydraulic, environmental, civil, and mining engineering works required to manage surface water at a mine.

This course is intended for a broad-based audience of managers, professionals, students and concerned stakeholders in mining who require an understanding of the concepts and issues of sustainable development. Sustainable Development in Mining focuses on the underlying concepts and issues that apply specifically to the mining industry. Included are the sustainable development concepts of... economic growth that preserves the earth's biophysical integrity; optimization of the societal benefits of economic development; system quality... which systems should be preserved/improved; a more equitable distribution of the benefits and burdens of economic growth ... both within the present generation and between present and future generations; greater public participation in the decision-making process. These concepts are illustrated by numerous case studies and examples from mining projects, and further supported by a discussion of mineral consumption, recycling and resource depletion.
