Kitting solutions are not limited to emergency use only. These custom packaging solutions are being used more and more in facilities and out in the field every single day - reducing mismanagement of materials, saving labor and storage costs, and minimizing the risk of theft or damage.
Safety: Assembling parts out in the field may be easy on fair-weather days, but during significant weather events, it can be a safety concern. It’s critically important to reduce crews’ exposure to elements like precipitation, extreme temperatures, wind and lighting as much as possible. Emergency response kitting can help by including preassembled parts as well as emergency supplies like flashlights and extra safety gear in order to reduce risk as much as possible.
Speed: In an emergency response situation, cutting corners isn’t an option. Increasing efficiencies is. Precious time out in the field or at the laydown yard can be saved by having preassembled parts on hand. Even the sales process can be simplified during these high-volume times by ordering predetermined kits instead of cherry-picking supplies individually.
Consistency: During large weather events, extra crews from contracting companies or utilities from outside the region may be called in to help. Oftentimes, these crews do not have the same equipment, training or processes in place. Emergency response kits can include essential tools that these crews may not already have. They can also include certain parts that are preassembled in order to reduce mistakes and inconsistencies. The customization doesn’t need to end there. “Consider what will make crews most comfortable and confident,” Contact us to help your team!
