McWane University Holds Environmental Boot Camp

2015 Environmental Boot Camp

McWane University conducted an Environmental Boot Camp in Franklin, Tennessee, on May 19-21. The boot camp was lead by instructors Terri Evans and Larry Bowers. This intense McWane-specific course covered a wide range of environmental topics with high emphasis on McWane’s goal of 100% Compliance, 100% of the time.

Having highly trained and competent personnel at all levels of the organization is a critical element in achieving this lofty goal, and this course was another step toward that goal. There were attendees from the Valve & Hydrant, Pipe, Plumbing, Technology and Business groups, and representatives from Manchester Tank, Amerex and Corporate.

On August 28, the Amerex Branch Managers attended a training seminar in Dallas, Texas, with ISNetworld. ISN’s process of collecting, verifying, and connecting will allow Amerex to review safety, insurance, quality, and regulatory information on all contractors and suppliers that they do business with.

Amerex will use ISNetworld to standardzize contractor management across multiple states and geographic regions and help them clearly communicate requirements and expections to contractors/suppliers.

This is Amerex’s next step in safety compliance by contractors/suppliers and having the support and educational opportunities from ISN will make their branches safer not only for team members, but for visitors and contractors as well.
