Make Fall a "Back to School" Outage
Down time becomes prime time when you use it to train your team.
These days, it seems as if planned outages happen year round, but many plants still schedule large-scale maintenance outages for late spring or early fall. That’s when the heating/cooling load is lowest, and the loss of generating capacity can be more easily managed by the grid. If you have an upcoming planned shut-down, Martech Training Services can help you make the most of this down time by capitalizing on unique training opportunities that aren’t available when your plant is online:
By way of example, just a few years ago a steam plant in Texas performed a major overhaul on its boiler feed pump during an outage. Unfortunately, only the staff present got to experience the process, and by the time that activity has to be performed again, most of those workers will be retired. Had the plant digitally documented the dismantling, repair, and reassembly, it could have created excellent training content that could be used for decades.
Because workers are so occupied with the tasks at hand during an outage, they don’t have any additional time to attend training. However, Martech Training Services can partner with your training team to take full advantage of the high level of accessibility that outages afford. We can transform your entire plant into an amazing training tool, using the information we gather to develop custom training content that is individualized and branded for your company. Working together, we can strengthen your team for generations to come.
Before your next outage, take a moment to consider . . .
When was the last time you updated your confined space training?
. . . and how much more prepared would your team be if you allowed Martech Training Services to make your next outage an A+ experience?
