Knowing how to operate all of our equipment can be worrisome. This is because we learned on older equipment at tech school. Operate array gear on the team, other departments and teams, and at different schools we’ve attended.
Over the last few years, the team has doubled its inventory, continue to add new technology. And at times, find it extremely hard to train everyone on each piece of equipment.
Like any other skill, you lose it if you don’t use it. So, our “street smarts” kicked in and we developed “cheat sheets” for all of our equipment. We laminated each sheet and stuck them in each case. Now, every member on the team is able to retrieve the specific item, start it up and place it into service.
We’re not big fans of reinventing the wheel. Actually, we like the KISS method, and had grate success with this. If you have a different way, and it works for you, don’t change it.
You are free to use, change or modify them. The only thing we ask is that you give credit where credit is due.
If your team uses “cheat sheets”, and would like to share them. Please email them to me and I’ll post them.
