Security Officers prepared for competency

At Tshipi Borwa Mine in the Northern Cape, the competence training with unit standards is presented by the Tshipi training centre and meets with mine training standards and requirements. The end result is that the Security Officer (in addition to security grading)will now also meet the mine competence requirements – qualified to perform security functions on the mine according to their Standard Operating Procedures.  Since January 2014 a lot of effort has gone into formulating and approving SOP’s at Tshipi Borwa Mine.

With various training courses and training methods on the market, the new trend is competency assessments, which prepare the Security Officer for specific functions.  This trend is most evident in mining and plant or smelter operations where high risk area security functions are performed and specific levels of competence are required, to perform tasks with maximum knowledge in accordance with set procedures and skill and also in the safest practical manner.

Thorburn has already successfully implemented this concept at Evraz Highveld Steel and Vanadium, SASOL mining operations and in recent development  this concept is taking shape at Tshipi Borwa Mine.
