Jeff Platter should know.  He personally experienced an arc flash blast that would have killed him if not for the personal protective gear he was wearing.  “It changed my life,” he said, and then impressed the gathering of facility managers, engineers, electricians, and services suppliers at the March meeting of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico with his first- hand knowledge of the critical importance of electrical safety programs.

Attention Healthcare Facility Managers
Or Any FM who Needs Compliance Training:
Here is a Resource 

The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) Hazardous Waste Bureau conducts hazardous waste inspections at hospitals, pharmacies, as well as other types of facilities.  They offer their services to conduct free training concerning managing hazardous waste at hospitals and pharmacies.  Having recently conducted inspections at several hospitals, they have found the majority of them to be out of compliance.  Their aim to provide this training to large audiences spreads the information more quickly than individually inspecting each hospital/pharmacy.

But beyond healthcare, NMED believes they might be able to target some training for other diverse and various types of facilities.  Compliance assistance is a key component in their program and keeping facilities in compliance makes the job a lot easier. 

Need more information to start this discussion? Contact Janine Kraemer, CHMM, Hazardous Waste Supervisor for the New Mexico Environment Department, 2905 Rodeo Park Drive East, Building 1,Santa Fe NM 87505 office  505-476-4372, or email to janine.kraemer@state.nm.us  or connect with Facility Manager Association’s vice president, Tom Plummer with the Indian Health Services at thomas.plummer@ihs.gov

Facility assessments and planning contained within a program called BUILDER.  The process starts with an inventory, which leads into conditional and functionality assessments.  From there, a condition prediction can be predicated, leading to work planning and work prioritization.  Accurate forecasting and actionable work planning lead to an engineering based investment plan, the ultimate outcome of the BUILDER processes.
