Risk Mitigation is one of the most important aspects of the steel fabrication process and is also arguably one of the most undervalued. This encompasses not only post-production quality checks of parts, but also evaluations of the fabrication process from project planning to operator improvement and accountability. From developing staff to optimising hiring practices and improving the efficiency of operations, risk mitigation touches every nook and cranny of manufacturing. No fabricator, regardless of size, can operate effectively without it.
Every day we notice risk, we have 1200 fabricators that we visit quire regularly and risks just jump out at you, these range from; Frank is the only one that can operate the Saw & Drill. So if Frank is not in on Monday, Yea…. You know the rest. Or James prices all the work and did the valuations, that’s his computer there but he left last Friday and not on good terms. Where do I stand? In a hole would be the answer. Other risks include; backing up of the computer, it may not get robbed but could just crash, and… well you answer that one. Risk is everywhere and you will never eliminate it all but we will help you put control measures in place.
