During the project in Naivasha it became clear that we can help the operators to improve the level of maintenance and operation. The most import skills were the basics to operate and maintain the production sites. We created a basic training which is easy to understand by the operators and wouldn’t take too much time. The production sites are not automated and so the operators have to be on site whole day. During my multiple visits to the production sites, I saw many things that we could use for the training and so we did.
Some parts of the training are: Electrical skills, Mechanical skills, Operation skills, Logbook and Asset management. During the training we’ve experienced a lot of corporation and we saw some very motivated operators. Another important thing in this training is safety. It’s good to learn our Kenyan colleagues to think more and different about safety and housekeeping. During the training, we’ve collected information which is added to the training document. The operators can use it now as a reference and the water company can use it also for new operators.
