Simtars wins the ‘We Deliver’ DNRM 2017 Achievement Award

David Phipps and Diane Lostroh worked tirelessly with the Safety Training Centre team and Senior Mines Inspector Tilman Rasche to deliver two weeks of high quality training in India. This prestigious annual award was one of only five received across the department.

Mine Safety and Health training was delivered to 25 mine managers from Coal India—the largest coal mining company in the world.

The team worked closely with staff across Simtars and Mine Safety and Health to tender, develop and deliver an intensive suite of specialised technical and regulatory training modules for the mine managers, who in turn are able to deliver the training to other Coal India staff.

The project was a two-year logistical feat which involved coordinating technical education content, training delivery presentations and staffing, and extensive negotiation and processes with the client in India.
