WearCheck Training

WearCheck has developed specialised training courses to help customers gain maximum advantage from their oil analysis programme.

These were developed out of the company's partnership philosophy and the belief that a workforce which understands and is committed to the oil analysis philosophy will obtain far better results than one that gets by with a limited know ledge of procedures.

The courses on offer have proved highly successful in changing attitudes to oil analysis, giving staff a thorough know ledge of how the system works and renewed confidence in their ability to work smarter.

The overall result has been a general improvement in the effectiveness of the maintenance programme with fewer mistakes, increased productivity and cost savings.
