Immersive Technologies training specialists have carried out operator risk assessments, performance analysis and targeted simulator based training for 283 haul truck operators at the mine. Los Bronces chose Immersive Technologies to supply the PRO3-B simulator and six modules, then separately contracted Immersive to administer the simulator training programme, including the provision of full-time training personnel working on site. This was part of an Anglo management objective to reduce risk, reduce operating cost and increase productivity.

Immersive Technologies has been providing analytics and reporting to identify operator training needs tied directly to Los Bronces site objectives. This in turn provided focus for simulator-based training activities which precisely targeted and closed performance gaps.

Rodrigo Maldonado, training manager at Anglo American, said: “This partnership is delivering the results we expected and we are pleased with the early reports of 25% reduction in body ups ground speeds, 60% reduction in overspeeds and 62% reduction in service brake abuse. Having the Immersive Technologies training personnel on site has significantly helped the uptake, acceptance and results of this initiative.”
