Bucyrus Australia was faced with the challenge of developing and implementing a "project based" site induction, as they commenced the erection of their 8750 Dragline. At time of writing, this dragline is the 2nd largest walking dragline in the world, with an approximate 2 year project period. The client approached Smart HR Solutions (SHS) to discuss options for a short to medium term solution that:
The solution we developed and delivered in record time was to create the Site Induction (including assessment) in an electronic format, and run it in its entirety from a CD Rom. The induction session could be run on a laptop computer in conjunction with a data projector for a trainer lead, group session, or as a self paced individual session on the computer.
Smart HR Solutions supplied manual assessment papers for the group sessions, whilst individual sessions are assessed on the screen. As there was no requirement for a database, SHS built into the induction a system generated certificate to be retained as training evidence. This certificate can only be issued by either the trainer of the group session, or by the system in an individual session once all requirements have been met.
The success in this case was due to SHS's ability to merge the client's requirements with our ability to drive the project to meet its goals, based on a total trust relationship.
We take pride in knowing we have contributed to the second biggest erection in the world!!
