The cards have been sent, the gifts have been purchased and we’re counting down the days to 2014. This is a natural time of year for reflection and as 2013 comes to a close, we’d like to offer you Talk Quality’s year-end wrap up.
In August, we posted a great blog about Bolt Handling and Storage. If you've been wondering about how to ensure your suppliers are top notch, then this is the blog for you.
As the year comes to a close, you may be thinking about cleaning out your files. We definitely are! Make sure to check out our blog on Record Retention pitfalls for some tips that will keep you from non-conformances at your next audit.
If training is your goal for the New Year but you’re not quite ready to bite the bullet, our blog on Periodic Training might help you decide.
These are all pointers for you coming directly from the field. Real life experiences from our project managers, staff, colleagues and clients. In the season of giving our goal is to give as much information from the steel construction industry as we can!
Before we wish you a happy holiday, we want to offer just one more tip. If you are thinking about getting AISC Certified for the new year, start now! There is currently a 120-150 day lead time for certification after you apply. Getting together your documentation will always take longer than you think; a PQR for bridge certification can sometimes take up to a month to complete. Start planning, asking questions and don’t forget you can call on us if you need assistance!
We want to hear your quality successes from 2013! Share with us on Facebook or Twitter; tell us your stories, your tips and leave us suggestions for more Talk Quality topics in 2014.
From all of us at Atema, I want to wish you a Happy Holiday season and, no matter how you define success, a successful 2014!
