Why You Should Give Workers What They Need to Do Their Jobs

Not having the right tools in hand when doing tasks around the house can turn a simple chore into lengthy, frustrating drudgery.

That slot head screw will never, ever be rotated by a phillips head screwdriver! If only you had the right tool … in your hand … exactly when you need it.

On a much larger scale, the interior of a process plant creates the same scenario, but there’s so much more at stake. When workers don’t have what they need – including up-to-date knowledge on plant processes – big dollars and deadlines are at risk.
