Thermography Audit

To compete in the global economy, small-business owners must maximize uptime and protect their assets by identifying and implementing state-of-the-art predictive maintenance and loss prevention tools. Infrared (IR) thermography is a nondestructive inspection technique that can pinpoint concerns in industrial electrical and mechanical systems. A professionally administered IR program can identify impending failures in electrical equipment; production machinery; fired equipment, such as boilers and furnaces; and utility supplies and prevent business interruptions.
For small industries, it's a costly affair to maintain an IR camera and train resource for such analysis. Understanding such requirement, we launched thermography services for our client with no extra cost. Thermography helps our client in maintaining machines / equipment, hence minimizing breakdowns, leading to cost saving.

Work Place Safety

In the world of business, keeping pace with the output and ensuring continued success is a key. Thus, there is no doubt that, each employee is an important and inseparable element of this process, who works in various capacities and work atmosphere.
It only takes one accident to have tragic economic and emotional consequences. Your employees are one of your company's greatest assets and hence their safety at the workplace is of prime importance to you.
Workplace safety is an important part of any work environment. This can be a construction site, production unit or a small office with very little movement. The important point to remember is that accidents can happen anywhere. With good training, safety practices and the necessary equipment, such accidents can be avoided or mitigated.
We would like to be with you in this endeavour and contribute towards the risk management process to build a safer work place.

Loss Lesson

A critical part of reducing your total cost of risk and improving profitability is learning why accidents and crashes occur and how to prevent them. We will guide you on post loss control measures.
