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.
