ZUJOVIC, L.; KECOJEVIC, V.  and  BOGUNOVIC, D.. Application of a content management system for developing equipment safety training courses in surface mining. J. S. Afr. Inst. Min. Metall. [online]. 2020, vol.120, n.8, pp.467-474. ISSN 2411-9717.

Web-based training (WBT) has become a widely popular training option that can be applied throughout a variety of areas and industries. Mining is a challenging industry that is continuously searching for improvements in its safety training processes. We used the content management system (CMS) WordPress to develop a web-based application to support traditional training in the mining industry. The study focuses on introducing operators of heavy machinery in surface mining operations to pre-shift machine inspections. WordPress does not require technical skills, and in addition to its default features, it offers a vast number of useful plugins. This project implements several plugins to create an application with training courses. In this paper we present both the process of creating a training course and an example of a developed course. Such training applications can be used on the internet or through a local area network.

Keywords : web-based training; WordPress; safety training; surface mining.
