Tire Care v2.3.2H5 (MAINSSTC)

What is the average life of haul truck tires in your mine? Probably not as good as you think it should be. VISTA Training's Tire Care training program can help you take a more proactive approach to improve the life of your haul truck tires. Even a modest improvement can mean millions of dollars in savings.

This course uses a variety of scenarios and problem-solving questions to help haul truck operators avoid obvious dangers - such as running over rocks, windrows, and spilled materials on the haul road. It also alerts them to less visible hazards that tend to weaken truck tires and shorten their average life. The roles of road maintenance personnel, supervisors, managers, mine engineers, and tire maintenance personnel are also explored.

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
• Examine the role tires play in mining operations.
• Define challenges companies face due to tire costs and maintenance.
• Explain the impact of daily tasks on specific equipment tires.
• Identify ways to reduce the wear and tear on tires.
