WEIGHBRIDGE OPERATORS are nearly always the first point of contact for your business with the outside world. Not only that, but they are also a critical element in site safety.

Furthermore, some of the most common problems seen on site can be remedied by quality weighbridge operation including poor logistics and inefficient haulage which leads to low productivity and a disgruntled workforce.

Despite such importance attached to the remit of a weighbridge operator, many of them can feel undervalued or under-equipped and thus feel unable to maximise their potential. This is where Essential Skills for Weighbridge Operators, a new course ran by MP Skills, comes in.

This course will give a Weighbridge Operator everything they need to maximise their potential whilst acting as a gateway to future learning and professional development.

From essential health & safety knowledge to the soft skills needed to deal with customers, contractors, and other visitors to your site, MP Skills aims to best prepare your Weighbridge Operator for the rigours of such a key position.

Attendees will also learn about how a site works, be made aware of potential site hazards, and how essential their role is to the function of the site as a whole. We call it essential skills because that’s just what weighbridge operators are; essential.

This isn’t just a day-long PowerPoint extravaganza either, MP Skills’ excellent trainers will challenge the delegates to bring their work experience to the table and participate in this fully interactive learning experience.

If your employee attends the course at our head office in Nottingham they can also try out our brand new virtual plant simulators to experience life on the other side of the tracks!

Here at MP Skills, we believe in life-long learning and those who attend our Essential Skills for Weighbridge Operators course could also look at signing up for the Mineral Processing Weighbridge Operator Apprenticeship which we also offer.
