Boosting Efficiency in Asset-Intensive Industries

Having a workforce that is capable of completing their work safely and efficiently is important to any organisation.

Safety is even more critical in the resources sector, where a considerable amount of work is conducted in hazardous or complex environments. Different projects will also require diverse competencies; some workers may need additional training to refresh their skills.

By having access to the right training and assessment software, organisations can increase workforce agility and productivity, improve compliance and effectively reduce costs.

Effective Workforce Training and Retention

TUTIS_ENTERPRISE is such a software that is helpful to a variety of industries, particularly asset-intensive industries, such as Mining and Resources. TUTIS_ENTERPRISE is a training and workforce compliance solution, which can ensure that workers are inducted, assessed and deemed competent before going on site.

Brett McFadgen, Mineral Processing Manager at KCGM (Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines), said, “Knowledge assessments are conducted online while skills assessments are now conducted in the field using mobile technology. The minimal paper usage saves us several thousand dollars per annum, and tens of thousands of dollars have been saved per annum in wages simply by conducting the skill assessments online. Our relationship with Tutis has become the cornerstone of our staff training and retention strategy.”

Maximising Safety while Minimising Costs

The oil and gas industry is operating in an environment of major price uncertainty and significant cost pressure. As a result, all foundations of upstream and downstream operations – extraction, processing, refining and distribution – are looking for ways to improve efficiency and reduce costs.

The utility industry is also facing several challenges, including an energy market in transition, the integration of renewable energy sources, digital disruption, ageing physical infrastructure, increasingly stringent regulations and a high proportion of staff approaching retirement.

Fergal Convery, Business Development Manager at Powered, believes that with its extensive experience in the mining sector, TUTIS_ENTERPRISE is well-positioned to help the oil, gas and utility industries manage compliance risks, reduce complexity, optimise running costs and automate business processes. Powered helps establish local and foreign companies in the Australian energy market. “The Australian oil, gas and utility industries have always had a long-standing focus on safety and operational excellence, and digital technologies are enabling further productivity gains,” Mr Convery said.

He further adds that “TUTIS provides effective training and assessment management systems to ensure succession planning and upskilling so that staff and contractors have the skills to safely and efficiently perform their roles. It also has the transparency to demonstrate to internal and external stakeholders the extent of training provided and its compliance with regulations, industry standards, corporate policies and community standards.”

Chris Wright, CEO at TUTISVReddo, said “TUTIS_ENTERPRISE is a workforce compliance solution for large enterprises, such as mining and energy companies. It is a cloud-based software solution with features and workflow across multiple business functions to deliver compliance assured. Features include on-boarding of staff and contractors; skillset management; assessments mapped to national standards; learning management; full training record management; and paperless authorisation and gate access permissions.

Managed Service for Seamless Adoption

TUTIS_ENTERPRISE is also offered as a ‘managed service’. Under this model, TUTISVReddo implements and operates the TUTIS_ENTERPRISE solution for clients. This service can dilute the institutional apprehension that regularly accompanies change. Essentially the change is outsourced to the very developers of the software, who have formidable abilities to ensure thorough execution using the system to conduct evidence reviews, data entry, onboarding assessments, enquiry, reporting and administration functions to ensure staff and contractors arrive on-site compliant and ready to work.
