Simulator training

One of the key training initiatives introduced by Chepstow Plant International recently is the Advanced Excavator Training Simulator, supplied by Volvo Construction Equipment UK and manufactured by Oryx Simulations. With health and safety at the core of Chepstow Plant International’s ethos, this significant investment underlines the company’s unwavering and continual investment to health and safety.

The company is utilising the simulator to remove the initial familiarisation and training on site. Traditionally, excavator training poses substantial risk in a live, working environment, due to the trainer having to be within the working parameters, with communication often proving challenging. This Advanced Excavator Training Simulator is being utilised to remove this risk of operating in a live environment, whilst the initiative is striving to create ‘Zero-Risk’. This in essence will enhance the health and safety training standards which Chepstow Plant International constantly strives for. Other training benefits of the simulator include:

  1. 1.Quick and efficient development
  2. 2.Training unaffected by adverse weather conditions
  3. 3.Reduced environmental impact
  4. 4.Minimising downtime and repair costs

This excavator training facility can either be used to train novice excavator operators or act as a ‘refresher training’ course to ensure continued operator performance. It is within these refresher training sessions that experienced operators can particularly focus on driving in an environmentally friendly manor whilst still maintaining precision and speed to complete the task at hand.

The initiative is striving to create ‘Zero-Risk’.

As one of the few specialist simulator training providers within the United Kingdom, Chepstow Plant International is able to offer training on the simulator alongside the company’s National Training Manager. Full details on the training benefits and programs that are available can be found within our training brochure and if interested, please get in touch with us.
