Simtars continues its support of the QMEA Ambassador Program

Students from the Queensland Minerals & Energy Academy (QMEA) Ambassador Program spent the morning meeting members of the Simtars Executive Team and technical staff.

The visit incorporated tours of the gas laboratory and analytical chemistry laboratory along with propagation tube and dust lab demonstrations. The visit concluded with a flame proof testing demonstration and a rundown of intrinsic safe (IS) testing. The students gained a better understanding of the vast variety of applications and careers that support and service the mining industry, to make it a safer and healthier industry for all.

Students enjoyed their visit and left with a better understanding of how Simtars contributes to improving safety and health outcomes in the mining and allied industries

Many of the students will enter a career in the mining sector and other allied industries. Being able to see first-hand the valuable work we do to ensure mine safety and health is maintained throughout Queensland, and knowing they will work in a safe environment, was a great way of reinforcing their decision to follow their chosen career path.

Congratulations to the graduating student ambassadors from all the staff here at Simtars. We look forward to welcoming the newly appointed ambassadors in 2021.
