Silver Series Web-based Training:

Dozer - Operation & Safety

Dozer - Operation & Safety is part of VISTA's growing family of Silver Series online training programs, which are 1-2 hours in length and are delivered via the web. These bulldozer training programs are ideal for new operator training in mining and construction.

More than any other type of heavy equipment, dozers are in the thick of things, encountering many types of materials and ground conditions as they handle tasks throughout the mine, such as pushing truckloads of material over dumps, building lifts and cleaning up shovel pits. It takes a highly skilled operator to do these jobs safely and efficiently.

The content of this course is focused on three key areas:

Lesson 1 - Components: In this lesson, trainees learn the major blade and track components of the track dozer and how they contribute to pushing material.

Lesson 2 - Controls: Before trainees can learn how to operate a bulldozer, they must first understand the controls of the machine and their function. This lesson also describes typical working conditions and basic operating techniques of the modern dozer.

Lesson 3 - Design and application: One of the keys to using a dozer productively is effective project management - planning how you're going to approach your push and return cycles for maximum efficiency and productivity. This lesson digs deeper into ground conditions, and how they affect productivity, as well as the different types of dozer operating modes, including cutting, ripping and carrying material.

Dozers used in mining are large, expensive machines. That means their operators must be productive and efficient to help the mine gain a decent return on its significant investment in these machines. This program will arm your trainees with everything they need to become top-notch dozer operators.

Trainers: Before you begin classroom or field training, why not provide your trainees with a solid foundation of knowledge about the equipment and how to operate it safety? This web-based training course can be delivered any time, anywhere you have access to a high-speed internet connection.
