Come on – let’s test our knowledge of structural repairs
The 7th February was the first Friday of the month so of course it was time for another exam. This time all technicians and surveyors sat the test on ‘Technical and safety implications of structural repairs’.
The technical side included installation of Helifix Helibars and Helibeam work, with questions on depth of embedment and jointing of longer lengths. Use of Cintec sock anchors was included, with the focus on diamond drilling, correct grout mixing and pilot hole diameters for particular anchor body sizes.
That’s not all; health and safety section covered use of pressurised air, water and grout, as well as work on fragile roofs, mental health awareness and emergency procedures for eye injury.
Our results will be analysed and used to refine our training. This is the way we intend to stay at the top of the specialist structural repairs industry. On the last Friday of the month a training session will include a run-through of all of the questions to aid understanding and retention.
This rolling program forms the heart of the ‘Brick-Tie College of Building Restoration’. For advice on crack-stitching, structural repairs of all types and a safe high quality job – contact us.
