Revolutionizing Supervisor Training: WorksiteVR - Mine Standards Training (MST)

30 March 2021

Immersive Technologies provides learning systems with high levels of learning retention and skills transfer, engineered to solve mining challenges around safety, productivity and equipment availability.

“Over the past 18 months we have been collaborating with some of the largest mining companies in the world to improve the supervision and coaching of heavy equipment operators via improvement of supervisor proficiency. Gone are the days where it takes a full year for a supervisor to be exposed to all types of weather, traffic, loading and digging conditions. This exposure and skills development can now be accomplished by immersing the learner into a replicated 3D mining environment through VR and touchscreen technology.”

Introducing our newest training system: Mine Standards Training (MST)

Imagine being able to simulate a scenario from surface or underground operations, put it on a virtual table and walk around it. Now add the capability to view the process from the cabin of any machine, or teleport to the pit floor itself. Then, take this scene and insert visual cues a supervisor should be able to identify, assess and correct. Sometimes these cues are subtle and sometimes obvious. Some are visible immediately, some are only clear at various times of the day or from a certain vantage point.

Visualize every conceivable operator behavior, inappropriate action or best practice from in-field, in-cab or birds-eye view, in any weather condition or time of the day. From recruitment and selection to compliance and workforce optimization, Mine Standards Training will help users on their capability to identify these issues.

The Mine Standards Training tool is dynamic, offering users the option to operate in Virtual Reality via our existing Worksite VR Quest platform, or on an interactive classroom touchscreen. These two options leverage current simulation assets to create engaging content such as drilling and blasting, ground engagement tools, supervisor training, pit priority rules, and many more related situations.

“We are excited about the real value our customers are already realizing with the improvement of Supervisor skills. We help them create realistic simulations in Mine Standards Training of both perfect and flawed operator behavior requiring the user to identify the deviations from best practices. This capability is helping transform existing flat content training programs to ones that are engaging and have higher levels of learner engagement and knowledge retention. The content is highly realistic and will improve the learning experience for both experienced and inexperienced users.”
