(Grupo MAKRO Press) – A total of 14 new operators successfully completed the heavy machinery course specialized in Articulated Trucks held in Panama City.
The course, which began on July 15, was divided into three modules which focused on Safety, Preventive Maintenance and Heavy Equipment Operation, where participants acquired the knowledge and skills necessary for the safe operation of the Articulated Truck, in order to avoid risks and injuries at the time of their work performance.
The good practices acquired in the new operators were in charge of our instructor Pedro Osorio, thanks to this eminently practical training, the participants learned the use of the electromechanical shovel system very useful for the extraction of minerals from the deposit, as well as the front of the hopper which can be raised by a hydraulic mechanism so that the loaded material (copper, coal, gold, iron ore or debris) can be dumped to the ground from the rear of the vehicle.
Once the practical course is finished, the new operators will be able to recognize the characteristics and technological innovations of this great mining machine and will be able to work in the mining sector, both metallic and non-metallic, as well as in companies that provide services for mining and civil works.
