Minimise risk, maximise efficiency

Minimise risk, maximise efficiency

Ship and platform maintenance interventions can be made safer and more efficient with reliable safety identification solutions, such as Brady Corporation’s IMO-compliant solutions that will survive harsh marine conditions.

Moving parts, residual energies, premature machine energisation, and the risk of slips and falls all make maintenance interventions extremely risky if one is not properly prepared.

“You can keep the whole crew safe and operational with safety solutions that limit risks related to moving machine parts and spills,” explains Christophe Nelissen, Brady Corporation’s regional manager of Middle East and Southern Africa. “Isolate machines from their energy supply with dedicated Lockout/Tagout solutions, and lock any machine in the off position while maintenance is ongoing,” he continues.

“In addition, avoid slips and falls by quickly absorbing and removing any oil or grease spills in seconds, without leaving any residue, using professional meltblown polypropylene spill control solutions,” emphasises Nelissen, highlighting the fact that Brady has a wide range of ship and offshore energy identification solutions.

No time to waste

“No ship or platform stays in port or under maintenance longer than needed,” asserts Nelissen. “Minimising risk and maximising efficiency enable great maintenance interventions that return capital assets for duty in the most optimal way.”

He adds that you can save time by quickly checking which assets need repair or replacement: “With Brady’s solutions you can scan a QR-code with a tablet or smartphone to initiate predefined and customisable asset inspection templates. These enable accurate and automated asset inspection logs and reports that can be shared automatically with relevant stakeholders.

Nelisson further says that any damaged safety warnings can swiftly be replaced with quality alternatives using Brady Workstation design apps and the BBP85 Multicolour Sign & Label Printer.

Your specifications

“Our signs and markers, either pre-printed or created at your location, are designed to resist oil, grease, weathering, and salt. They have been tested against international standards to stay attached and remain legible for 12 years in marine conditions,” Nelissen says.

“They are fully customisable and can be adapted to your specifications,” he expands. “Our complete offer also includes EU Marine Equipment Directive and IMO-compliant halogen-free and photoluminescent signs and labels, as well as aluminium plates in all shapes and sizes.”

Guidebooks for offshore energy and ship identification

The guide Maintain platform safety and efficiency offers a high-level overview of the identification and safety solutions Brady offers to customers in offshore energy. The Keep ships safe and efficient guide, meanwhile, provides an overview of the identification and safety solutions Brady offers to customers who operate ships.

“We are looking forward to building a strong relationship with you too,” Nelissen enthuses.
