QUBE’S DOJO TRAINING INNOVATION
Qube’s innovative and leading “PCC Dojo” safety and training solution has helped to elevate our Pure Car Carrier (PCC) and Roll-on Roll-off (RoRo) stevedoring operations to global industry best practice. It has delivered significant reductions in cargo damage and improvements in quality, safety and service.
To ensure the highest levels of damage free outturn and vessel schedule integrity in our service delivery, Qube looked to build on the unique elements of leading PCC training systems in Japan. “Dojo” literally means “Training” (“Do”) “Place” (“Jo”) and, under the Japanese training model, employees go to a Dojo to learn the different elements of working in a PCC operation.
Qube designed and implemented an Australian version of the PCC Dojo. It focuses on one-on-one experiential learning and training and includes a full immersion drive simulator at each PCC site – an industry first. Here, employees learn the different elements of working in PCC and RoRo loading and unloading operations by completing interactive and practical training across eight specialised work stations.
Qube’s PCC Dojo Training Centres have now set a new industry standard of excellence for safe work practices in this area. Peer recognition has been in the form of several awards, including the Transport and Logistics Industry Skills Council Award for Innovation and Excellence in Workforce Development, as well as the UC-win/Road Award for 3D VR Simulation.
