Working with sheet fabrication materials is a dangerous preoccupation. If you’re looking for a team of experienced fabricators, here are a few qualities to look for:
A moment’s inattention can lead to an accident of major proportions. The right team to hire for your fabrication knows and understands this. That’s why they’re careful and they pay attention. If the team doesn’t seem to know how to pay attention or listen to what you have to say, that could be a reflection of how they work as well. You’ll be better off hiring a different firm to handle your fabrication requirements.
Wears protective clothing
Do It Yourself says that sheet metal workers require protective clothing when they work. Ask the fabrication company you’re hiring if this is the standard for their employees. They must have goggles, hard hats and other protective clothing. If this isn’t the case, then you might be taking a chance hiring a company that doesn’t seem to value the safety of its employees. Go elsewhere for help and assistance.
Organized and clean
A visit to the work site gives you more information to work with so you can decide whether to hire the team or not. While a good workplace is often spotless, a bit of clutter here and there isn’t a problem. If you see that the crew is organized, knows how to work safely and efficiently, then those are good reasons to go ahead with your hiring decision.
Before you hire a sheet fabrication team, check out the tools that the crew uses. Are they all in good working condition? That’s a must and a good indicator that you’re hiring the right team. On the other hand, if the tools are rusted, badly deformed or damaged beyond repair, then that could compromise work results. Hire a different team for your project instead.
