The perennial problem of equipment tracking is now resolved! With thousands of pieces of equipment both in the shop and out on site, equipment tracking and inspection has always been a headache (for all companies!). We’ve now partnered with Papertrail to enable us to track each and every piece of equipment – from an individual carabiner to thousands of feet of rope; from vehicles to even the certification of the guys in the field – all now instantly traceable and instantly retrievable from anywhere. Great news for us, and peace of mind for our customers’ managers and safety professionals.
Blade Repair training courses for two employees – Two of our more senior field techs have been in London (Nov 2016) completing on-going blade repair training with the European ‘Renewables Training Network’, a training provider of this new, UK standard in blade repairs and inspection. Looking at the guy’s Facebook pages (and no doubt, their expenses), they seemed to make best use of their R&R too!
Our newly and totally refurbished premises in Sweetwater, Texas now provides over 10000 sq ft of secure, purpose designed storage, training and repair facilities.
Our processes and procedures continue to evolve and improve. We now await audit and inspection – follow us on Facebook for news on this as it happens.
In order to continue to meet customers’ increased needs and expectations, we will continue to look at staff training needs across the board – even the small things such as better First Aid provision and the kits currently carried on our vehicles.
A big commitment for any company, but a process with which we are familiar. It won’t be something that will happen over night, but we are well placed to get this taken care of as quickly as the process allows, and we look forward to the journey!
