When industrial sites perform shutdowns, turnarounds and other major operational events, a sizable temporary workforce is brought on site to deliver the schedule of works. Managing this workforce, and providing the equipment, support services and best practice to drive efficiency, adds yet another layer of complexity to these events.


“Large-scale industrial events naturally create complex and high-pressure working environments, but a wide range of support is available from planning through to completion,” says Jeff Allen, Coates Hire National Industrial Services Manager. “With so much activity happening on site, and so much for our customers to focus on, there can be a lot of white noise. The value we offer is to take some of that white noise away.”

Here we reveal five surprising ways that Coates Hire can support major industrial events.


1. Consumables 

Consumables can be a major expense and a logistical challenge to manage during industrial events – particularly when you consider the size of the workforce on site, and the scale of work being undertaken. For many customers, relying on one contractor to oversee all hire equipment and consumables creates a lot less hassle, and proves to be a much lower risk approach to take.

With considerable experience supporting industrial sector customers, Coates Hire understands the complexity, urgency and vast requirement for consumables during these events. “We offer customers a timely and cost-effective solution for the supply of consumables and other specialist services, for all contractors on site,” says Jeff.


2. Refuelling

The time taken and distance travelled to refuel petrol-powered tools and equipment can easily cut into tool time and impact on overall productivity. Coates Hire offers on-site refuelling services across its entire fleet, to provide industrial customers with a safe, convenient and reliable way to keep equipment moving – and maintenance work on track. This service can also be extended to provide a complete refuelling solution for all contractors on site.


3. HSEQ services 

Industrial events require a range of different trades with unique competencies and qualifications to deliver maintenance work. As a registered training organisation (RTO), Coates Hire can further support industrial customers by providing training, and overseeing verification of competency (VOC) across the workforce. “Through onsite managed tool shops we can also utilise VOC data to confirm eligibility for tool and equipment loans,” Jeff explains. 


4. Tracking tools and locating lost equipment.

Given the scale of industrial events and the high value equipment and sophisticated technology that support them, the cost of lost and misplaced equipment very quickly adds-up. By combining proprietary CHASE software with managed tool shops, Coates Hire can support industrial customers in tracking, locating and optimising the performance of all of tools, equipment and assets.


5. Accommodating temporary workforces

Coates Hire offers a wide range of technology, equipment and services to support temporary workforces. These include:

As well as providing these and many more support services, customers often turn to Coates Hire for guidance and best practice to inform the planning for these events. 

Coates Hire offers wide-reaching services to support industrial sector customers – including considerable support for the influx of temporary workers to site. “By partnering with an experienced solutions provider our customers can stay focused on the execution of these events, with the assurance that many peripheral services will be taken care of,” says Jeff.
