KBK mine operators undergo training

MORE than 200 operators attached with the Ramu NiCo’s Kurumbukari (KBK) mine division have completed a mine safety and work ethics training.

The training was for May-June and aimed at building staff confidence and to ensure the highest of safety and work ethics is upheld at the workplace.

KBK mine technical training co-ordinator and trainer Philip Narokobi Baiwog said a total of 214 operators went through the training.

Of the total 32 were dozer operators, 112 were Volvo operators and 45 were excavator operators.

Mr Baiwog said while Ramu NiCo (MCC) Limited is aiming at reaching its production capacity of 85 per cent by the end of the year, safety remains paramount.

He said similar trainings will be rolled-out to other sections including; Washing Plant, Workshop, especially on heavy equipment diesel fitter mechanics and others.

Mr Baiwog said this was one of the first in-house trainings on safety and work ethics for all the mine operators and the response from the participants was overwhelming and positive.

He said the training now places them in a better position to understand their roles and responsibilities and this will ensure they operate safely, take ownership of the project and meet the daily production targets in the mining division and the final production outcome will be tangible.

Mr Baiwog is a professional assessor trainer and possesses certificate four in training and assessment in work place.

He joined Ramu NiCo in April 27 after a short stint with the University of Goroka. Post Courier
