Intro
& Safety familiarizes trainees with seven key types of heavy equipment used
on mine sites and large construction projects, key principles of worksite safety
and recommended practices for equipment startup and shutdown.

The
one-hour Pre-Use Inspection seminar teaches trainees how to perform a pre-use
inspection on all machine types presented in Intro & Safety.


“Mines and contractors can use these two
modules to provide a solid foundation in basic safety training practices, which
they can build upon with procedures and regulations specific to their worksite
and region,” says Bruce Rabe, CEO of Vista Training.
