Kazakhstan: NC KTZ JSC will introduce a rating system for assessing the work of machinist-trainers

The rating system for evaluating machinist-instructors will improve the efficiency of the command and instructor structure of the depot.

“The experience and skill of this profession is decisive in the system of training and advanced training of locomotive crews, prevention of accidents in the locomotive industry”, said Bolat Ibadullayev, General Director of the Department of traction rolling stock of KTZ-Freight Transportation JSC.

As a result of the rating, approaches to the formation of a personnel reserve for the positions of Deputy Directors of operations and machinist-instructors will be revised.
Each month, according to the results of the rating, the best machinist-instructor will be determined in each operational locomotive depot, who will have the opportunity to participate in the national competition for the title “Best machinist-instructor”. The winner will be awarded with a special badge.

An electronic passport will be developed for each locomotive crew. The document will record information about the level of training and professional activity of each driver and his assistant. Passport data will reveal details of the locomotive crew in the transition from one depot to another.

According to Anatoly Kim, chief engineer of Zhambyl branch of KTZ-Freight Transportation JSC, the introduction of a rating system will be a good motivating factor in the work of machinist-instructors.

“Personal success allows us to achieve high production results”, said Anatoly Kim.
