What does it mean to be an innovation leader?

No comments

For us, being an innovation leader means setting the course for excellence, leading the way into the unknown.

To be an innovation leader we constantly have to challenge yesterday’s methods to tomorrow’s problems. Because of the rapid advancement in technology, the methods that once worked to solved problems are no longer as effective.

Ones ability to be flexible and adapt to change is crucial to not falling behind in this VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambigious) environment.

In our industry, change is always on the way. Simply put, there is always innovation work to be done. For that reason, we have naturally engrained innovation into our organisations DNA.

Design thinking is what we do on a daily basis – big and small. Our team draws on imagination, intuition and systemic reasoning to explore the possibilities of what could be, to create desired outcomes that benefit the end user.

As Sebastiaan van Kemp, Innovation Manger at Access Technology Group put it “we had to develop a new way of thinking in order to design better solutions, services and experiences to solve the new wave of problems we will face today and in the future”.

Around our office you’ll see us designing solutions for tomorrow with creative thinking all over – from bicycles being upcycled to badging wheels for collecting a large sum of data, to water fountains being used to simulate continuous rain fall… nothing is “too crazy” at the ATG headquarters.

VISICS Academy Release!

No comments

We’ve developed and launched the VISICS academy – the place to be for building and up-skilling your VISICS knowledge.

The academy, featuring a blended learning approach, allows us to make the VISICS education program more flexible and accessible, as our operations continue to expand across the globe.

The design is based on the mobile first principle, allowing trainees to learn anytime, anywhere.

The structure is simple, each certification journey is divided into three sections:

  • Online training – including videos and interactive quizzes;
  • HQ training – practical training at the VISICS headquarters; and
  • Field training – applied learning and coaching in the field.

Once all sections of a journey have been completed a certificate will be awarded. That trainee may now operate self-standing.

With this initiative we’re looking forward to further supporting our partner’s operations.

If you would like more information about the VISICS academy, please contact our lead trainer.

VISICS Feature Release!

No comments

During turnaround projects, it’s essential to have the right overview of information, at the right time.

With the release of our web application, a new feature in the VISICS monitoring system, our operators, supervisors, and contractors can easily have relevant actionable insights at their fingertips.

Our goal is to bring complex and simple data alike together in a meaningful and easy-to-understand manner – breaking down data silos.

For our digital monitoring operators, the web application dashboard contains static emergency-related information, weather forecasts, safety guidelines, and other quick need-to-know information. (See photos below!)

It also enables operators to easily document occurrences and incidents, digitally, with supporting documentation such as text, video, or photo footage. With the click of a button, these reports can be exported for easy end-of-day handover or incident escalation.

We’re excited to be piloting the web application during a major turnaround project at a refinery in Wales, in February.

Stay tuned to learn more about the pilot and results!

A new world record!

No comments

There goes our biggest project of the year, off to the UK to set a new world record!

During this turnaround, our mobile VISICS solution will be monitoring 160 confined spaces – able to see what’s happening inside the confined space, communicate with the engineers performing the maintenance activities and register exactly who has entered and left the manholes and at what time. All for a safer and more efficient turnaround!

Monitoring takes place onsite with our fully redundant server solution.

A big thanks to our trusted partner ESS Safeforce.
