“The Well Stocked Foam Rig”
The benefits of the well equipped Spray Foam Rig is;
improved efficiency, reduced return trips to the, and increased profits!
It is a good idea to assign one crew member to use a checklist before heading out; to be sure you have everything you need. The list below, is by no means the only things you may want on YOUR rig.
A few examples of things I recommend having on a rig include; a Microwave, bottled water, Ramen noodle soup (in sealed cups) and salt & pepper. Don’t keep so much that your employees will count on you to provide lunch, but rather consider these emergency rations for times when you are on jobs “in the middle of nowhere” or you simply don’t have time for the crew to drive into town for lunch. Wipes and toilet paper are also handy. These items help meet the personal needs of the crew. A place for everything and everything in its place!
This will save you time, money, and aggravation. Likewise having 3 of everything you use on your rig, including gun parts, pump seals and springs, air filters, as well as many of the items listed below.
Keep in mind that OSHA requires you to have M.S.D.S. for every fluid, caulk, and chemical you carry. (Don’t get caught without them).
A three ring binder with plastic inserts work well. Ask your office staff to make one copy for the office, and one copy for each rig
(I used to keep several for the spray foam products on board).
Remind them they must keep the books up to date. Make sure all crew members know where this binder is kept. In case of emergency, you will need this information at your fingertips.
