The existence of PT. ABM Investama Tbk (ABM)’s consistency in strengthening the  Mining Value Chain (MVC) strategy through increasing human resource competence


Jakarta, March 5, 2021 - The trend of coal commodity prices continues to increase in line with the improving prospects for world economic recovery. In order to be able to compete, it takes the ability and skills of qualified human resources (HR) in the field of lifting equipment so the productivity can continue to be improved. Realizing this, ABM through its subsidiaries, namely PT Dianta Daya Embara (DDE) and PT Mifa Bersaudara (Mifa) presented a Crane Lifting Equipment Operator Training Program in Meulaboh to support capacity building and youth empowerment, especially in the West Aceh region.

Adrian Erlangga, Director of ABM explained that this training program was a form of ABM's consistency in strengthening the company's Mining Value Chain strategy. "The coal mining industry is an industrial sector that has a big role in supporting national development. We hope that this training can optimize the synergy among the subsidiaries in the ABM Group in addition to making a positive contribution to the communities around ABM's operational areas. " explained Adrian.

The presence of this program is an initiative of DDE and Mifa which is motivated by the company's sutainable commitment to support the development and availability of human resource in the crane lifting equipment operator profession. Ricky Nelson, President Director of Mifa, explained that the role of crane lifting equipment operators is very important in the coal mining process. "At least the operator of the lifting equipment must fulfill three aspects, namely the critical position in terms of loading and unloading speed of coal and property damage, sufficient special skills or expertise, understand and can apply the aspects of Health, Safety, Work & Environment (K3LH)" explained Ricky.

The training model implemented in the crane operator development program this time has been adjusted to the need to obtain an Official Operator Permit certification from the Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration, which includes a series of class materials, theoretical exams, and direct practice in the field. Satrio Daru Sasongko, Director of DDE, said that this operator training will be carried out continuously with the hope that the results can produce quality of human resource who have the best skills in their fields. "The implementation of this training program is carried out in various stages, starting from the selection stage, observing the work area in the vessel, to implementing the DDE Stevedoring training and internship model," said Satrio.

ABM exists as an integrated energy company that manages an integrated mining business ecosystem. "In line with the company's value namely sustainable development, ABM continues to strive to provide added value wherever we operate," concluded Adrian.
