There was exceptional interest in tútis, ABSC Group’s training and assessment management system, at the recent Qld Mining Industry Health and Safety Conference in Townsville.
Jim Munro, ABSC Group’s Director Business Development, said that the company was proud to again showcase this world class system. “Since we demonstrated here last year we have added a number of new functionalities and enhanced the existing functionalities to ensure we continue to meet the needs of industry” he said.
Based on the company’s many years of experience servicing this market ABSC Group have developed a world’s first (world’s only) Training and Assessment management system (tutis) that takes the hard work out of the administration while allowing the creation of best practice assessment instruments and providing an audit trail second to none. “Our solutions are fully scalable and can be custom deployed to specifically meet the needs of individual companies,” Munro said.
Munro says that the reason we train is to ensure a safe and productive workforce NOT to produce acres of paperwork and an administrative burden that requires increased staffi ng levels and often takes our highly skilled trainers out of the field and behind a desk adding to the inefficiencies. tutis has been developed by industry people who understand the need for a system to not only manage compliance but also manage the client’s business. This is achieved through the unique features and advance reporting structure. tutis is an intuitive, easy to use system that will save time and money.
Training of staff to meet the ever increasing skills shortage in the resource sector is a demanding vocation and mining companies have teams of people dedicated to skilling workers to fill the many vacancies available today and into the future. The biggest task however is the creation of truly holistic and relevant assessment instruments and the administration of the training and assessment process which often sees highly skilled and competent trainers reduced to tears.
Munro has seen the frustration and inefficiencies across the country. “It is not an individual company, site or indeed State problem – the issue knows no boundaries,” he said.
Munro says that current clients are providing valuable feedback on the system’s impact on their businesses and they state the benefits to them include reduced administration demands (less staff required to manage records), vastly improved safety performance, increased productivity and increased staff retention through improved training and assessment practices.
With clients in SA, WA and QLD utilising the current range of functionality, ABSC is embarking on a further development program which will see tutis offer full document management, human resource management, comprehensive safety health and environmental management features.
