You're proud to employ a strong team of in-house technicians who understand the ins and outs of your equipment. If you invest in more complicated models, however, you may quickly find that their skills and knowledge fall short.
Extensive training may be required to ensure that in-house techs are capable of safely and efficiently operating essential equipment, no matter how complicated it seems at the outset. Keep these do's and don'ts in mind as you proceed.
Do: Prioritize Safety
Above all else, employees need to know how to operate equipment safely. Remind them how your existing safety practices apply to new equipment. They should always check ground connections and ventilation. Safety glasses and protective clothing are also essential. Depending on the nature of the new equipment, tailored safety training may also be required.
Do: Develop Procedure Specifications
Every application should feature a framework with specifications to promote consistency. Trainees should be informed of these procedures and tested on them to ensure that they can complete tasks with an acceptable level of precision.
Don't: Stop Training
As new techs join your team or new equipment comes into play, you will want to continue to make training a priority. Even experienced techs may need updates from time to time. Develop a training schedule complete with regular testing, if necessary.
