The ROI of Turnaround Training
Everyone in the oil and gas industry understands that turnarounds are one of the biggest events in the life of a refinery and chemical plant. The size and complexity coupled with the immense number of man hours required for planning, scheduling and execution are two of the reasons our clients look to Onpoint. We pride ourselves on providing the very best turnaround personnel, safety services and workforce transportation because we know, just like you, that working safely and coming in on time and on budget is the goal. But, one area that often gets overlooked is turnaround specific training, even though the return on investment has been clearly demonstrated. Logically, when your in-house team is more knowledgeable and equipped to more effectively support your turnarounds, you’re going to experience better results. Onpoint offers industry leading courses across all aspects of turnarounds that have helped many of today’s best turnaround managers, planners, schedulers and execution coordinators advance their careers. From Fundamentals of Turnaround Management to Primavera courses, to our new Execution Coordinator course, Onpoint is the go-to for turnaround training either in our training facility or on-site at your location.

Article: Improving Turnaround Recovery

Turnaround managers begin with bright hopes of safely performing the scope assigned in the time allotted for the cost agreed on.
