Learn how to avoid a RED FACE!

With the correct Open Pit Mining Training, you can avoid being closed down by a mining inspector. You might be in trouble! If you are uncertain about applying your mine's Code of Practice (COP) the correct way to stay out of trouble, you might genuinely face suspension. It is one thing to have a COP, but a totally different thing to apply it legally!

There are other role-players (or so they call themselves) that claims to train mine employees very quickly and very cheaply. This is a "QUICKFIX" solution that never ends up to be "Cheap". Cutting corners would eventually cost you more money and more frustration. These so-called "QUICKFIX" schemes or service providers will scratch the surface with their unscrupulous training practices which will definitely result in mine closure.


So... what is the difference between a "QUICKFIX - FAST BUCK" trainer and a Legal MQA Accredited Training Service Provider?

The underground geological conditions have change tremendously at Kangra Coal over the past two years and we required a focused intervention to improve the Strata Control knowledge of our employees. The positive impact of Strata training at Kangra Coal has been evident and our underground staff has benefited by it in the following ways:

Other aspects that have improved are our underground staff’s knowledge of geology. Because of this, knowledge of the strata around you, they have a better understanding of the causes of rock falls.

Our employees have benefited immensely from the “Sounding and Barring” training. A first defense in preventing any rock fall incident is “Sounding and Barring” and a huge emphasize is placed on it throughout the mining industry and we have therefor gained a lot from the training given in this regard.

Underground staff is trained in proper support practices and have a better understanding of the physics supporting to different support designs which indirectly contribute to the prevention of fall of ground incidents.

Kangra Coal Pty Ltd as an organization have also directly benefited from this training. We are dedicated to the safety of our staff members and this training has definitely contributed to the improvement of our accident rates.

Due to the success of the Strata training we have decided to re-train all our operators and supervisors on the improved Competent Person A and Competent Person B training commencing June/July 2012. We foresee that the impact of this training will be evident in the future of our mine and expect that this training will once again be of great value to our staff.
