Machine operation ‘made easy’
THE Preparation Group has introduced easy-to-read ‘How to Use’ cards onto its range of shotblasters, grinders, planers, scrapers, dust extractors and tools. The cards have clear, step-by-step pictorial instructions and include QR codes that when scanned with a mobile phone or tablet camera, take people directly to a video that shows switching the machine on, changing components and fitting accessories.
The company has spent the past few months producing a series of videos for its YouTube channel that aim to simplify using its machines and highlight important health and safety features.
Says Tracey Glew, group managing director, ‘Our marketing and technical personnel have been committed to leading the way in innovation and health and safety. The launch of our ‘How to’ initiative for The Preparation Group’s 110v equipment in the hire market has been a huge success and we have now rolled it out to all of our equipment including videos for our three-phase machines. Our range is also SafeHire certified and we will continue to address key issues to ensure user confidence in a clean, safe operation and the health and safety of others where operations are being conducted.’
The full range of videos can be found on The Preparation Group’s YouTube channel.
