15 Mar Rio Tinto’s Experience with Automation Improving Safety for Employees and Creating Value
Rio Tinto shared a case study on people strategy for various autonomous systems within their operations, and the importance of keeping employees engaged and informed during upskilling and reskilling transitions. For them, inclusivity and trusting the ingenuity of their people has resulted in successful innovation.
This case study is for the Autonomous Mining Skills Migration Case Study library. To achieve the desired operating efficiency and productivity benefits of an autonomous operation, companies require new skillsets in the workforce. By providing examples around communication strategy, change management, training, skills pathways, and lessons learned based on lived experience, these case studies aim to assist the industry in creating a workforce that will enable autonomous mining.
