Toxfree Waste Services for Rio Tinto have just completed the one day Vacuum Awareness Course, which is an IFAP approved course. The course is a unique training experience developed through extensive industry consultation. Toxfree assisted in piloting the course within their service streams to contextualise to their business needs.
The course places a strong emphasis on positive job arrangements and covers all aspects of vacuum loading, namely:
- the types of vacuum equipment;
- safety and hazard management;
- undertaking of vacuum loading operations;
- transport requirements;
- selection of equipment type; and
- fault finding.
This course is the first to be conducted on a Rio Tinto site nationally and was well received by all participants.
