  • Competency

    • Competency is not the same is training

    • Training without experience does not result in competency

    • Experience without training does not result in competence

    • In the workplace, peer and production pressures will normally take precedence over formal training (on the job training)

  • Can we change things?

    • Culture change required – takes time!

  • YOU – the end user hold all the aces!

  • Downstream – actively support your ethics

  • Upstream – Demand that your suppliers do the right thing. Audit them yourselves. Set your own standards! It’s competitive out there!

Repairer

  • So, how can we improve things?

  • Take ownership of your FLP products, relying solely on the certificate is not always good enough.

  • Employ or train an expert – give that position the authority to keep order, develop in implement policies and procedures


Flameproof repairs maintenance and standards

  • Audit your choice of CB and TL

  • Audit your suppliers, whether manufacturers, repairers, or suppliers

  • Audit your own operations!

  • COMPLAIN! about sub standard service

  • Finally, when everything is in place,

  • ENFORCE your plan, your policy, and your procedures.

  • It can be done – If you plan ahead
