ASHRAE 2018, an experience worth attending!

ASHRAE 2018, an experience worth attending!

“My role in my organization is that of Systems Analyst. I deal in numbers, databases, graphs, and charts, on a daily basis. So, in spite of the fact that I really like looking at nuts, bolts, and cool tools on occasion, my decision to attend the AHR Expo in Chicago was a bit of a “risk” in the area of providing value to the company. But I am so glad I did.

I stumbled across one of our project managers on day one and followed him around, randomly exploring, checking out anything that caught our eye, and talking specifics (him talking, me listening!) with a few choice vendors. Fun and educational, it was a really good day. For day two I followed my normal strategy and chose sessions to attend all day long. Some sessions were directly in line with what we do, and some were more random selections. As our PMs, managers, and engineers are busy out on the floor chasing down leads, I spent my time listening to business strategies, reviewing available software, and hearing industry stories about managing all kinds of business risks.

So, did I find value in the visit? Absolutely! I am still referring to my notes and chasing down observations. Would I choose to go again? Again, absolutely! But I might also encourage someone else in our organization who is, like me, out of the manufacturing and service mainstream to take a chance and attend and learn in my place. And finally, is the AHR show really that impressive? If you have never attended, then you really have no idea. Short answer? Absolutely!”

Custom Air Products & Services, Inc. Brings home the Bronze for the 8th Year In a Row!

Posted on

Custom Air Products & Services, Inc., is proud to announce their 8th year of recognition as Hard Crafts Medium-Bronze Award from Houston Business Roundtable & Houston Area Safety Council.

On May 19, 2017, CAPS along with 1400 plus industry representatives from owners and contract companies attended a celebration recognizing Greater Houston Area contractors for their outstanding safety performance hosted by the Houston Business Roundtable (HBR) & Houston Area Safety Council (HASC).  This year marks the 30th anniversary of The Houston Safety Excellence Awards where many Houston Gulf Coast  area  chemical, refining and energy companies come together in a cooperative effort with the contractors that provide construction and maintenance services to improve on-site safety, reduce accidents, and most important, reduce injuries to personnel.

For the past eight years, CAPS has been nominated by Dupont LaPorte Safety Team and has been the recipient of Hard Crafts Medium-Bronze Award, which is a distinguished “World Class” award that demonstrates CAPS commitment to safety year after year. Other major components used to measure safety are Total Recordable Industry Rate (TRIR) and Experienced Modified Rate (EMR).

TRIR is the measure of the rate of recordable workplace injuries, normalized per one hundred workers (or 200,000 man-hours) per year. Recordable cases involve occupational death and any non-fatal occupational illnesses including loss of consciousness, restriction of work or motion, transfer to another job, or any medical treatment other than first aid. CAPS has had minimal recordable injuries since June of 2011, making this the fifth year of a near perfect TRIR.EMR is a number used by insurance companies to gauge both past cost of injuries and future probabilities of risk. The EMR of 1 is considered to be the industry average. In the past three years, CAPS has had EMR scores of .70 in 2014, .66 in 2015, and .62 in 2016, with all three scores being well below the industry average.
