To Train Future Skilled Workers, Speak Their Language
 
With baby boomers starting to retire in droves, training the next generation of maintenance professionals calls for methods specifically tailored to the younger audience. It's all a matter of changing perceptions and making learning fun — and putting things in a context they understand. For example, school-age children may benefit more from a camp that encourages working with their hands than a brief visit from a maintenance worker on Career Day. Meanwhile, game-based training allows skilled laborers of all ages to learn about maintenance without hazardous consequences.

Asset-level Budgets Mean Better Cost Tracking
 
In his white paper, "Managing the Maintenance Budget," Robert Peffen suggests that maintenance managers establish a spending plan at the asset level, allowing them to closely track performance and cost impact. Such a process requires identifying necessary preventive and predictive maintenance, along with documenting past repairs and anticipated refurbishments.

Planning Takes Sting Out of Emergencies
 
Emergency preparedness requires a 360 degree approach that can be easily executed should a worst-case scenario arise. Tools such as digital staff tracking, photoluminescent markings outlining escape paths, and ongoing training on safety risks may mean the difference between a controlled scene and a situation dictated by panic.

Maintenance Staff and Machine Operators: A Reliable Pairing
 
Cooperation between maintenance personnel and equipment operators is paramount to system efficiency and reliability. Businesses can engage operators in the maintenance process by teaching them what to look for in terms of machine wear and thus encourage scheduled repair time, as opposed to the lost hours of unscheduled maintenance.

What's Your Glove's Arc Flash Rating?
 
The ASTM F2675/F2675M test method is used to determine the arc flash rating of hand protective products in the form of gloves, glove materials, or glove material systems. The test method applies to protective products designed to fit on the hand and specifically intended for electric arc flash protection use as accessories for workers exposed to electric arc heat flux values from 84 to 25,120 kW/m² (2 to 600 cal/cm²s).
