Wouldn't your industrial maintenance job be easier if the machine operators understood a little bit more about what you do and why? Now they can, print out these maintenance training newsletters and share with entire plant. See http://bin95.com/reliability_training.htm

Our apologies to those customers who have seen their industrial training orders delayed by the post office. Here is the reason why.
Recently our [ http://BIN95.com ] customers have been experiencing postal delays and losses of industrial training products they purchase from us due to Congress’ attack on our United States Postal Service (USPS). As a Small Veteran Owned Business, we use the USPS low delivery cost and it’s past high reliability to offer our customers free delivery in some circumstance and to keep our prices overall as low as possible. This allows our small busin...

Designed for the newbie, but even 10 year vets  report they learned a lot of best practices (best way to perform task) and downtime saving tips they never knew existed. Register soon as these fill quickly. Class size strictly limited to 10 attendees as this is not just scholastic or presentation, but actual training where instructor insures each perform task the safest, most reliable and best way.

The upkeep of facility and quality of room cleaning and front desk service indicate years of poor management. As a Best Western customer for years, i found this hotel to have an extremely low rating compared to any other Best western I have ever stayed in. Even lower rating than full size Holiday Inns (which are typically more ran down than Holiday Inn expresses.) Obvious facility deterioration/disfunction clearly shows management does not care. Electrical outlet in clear site as you 1st enter room cracked/broken, yet no one ever inspected, and replaced. Cleaning staff not trained to report such discrepancies (poor management). Just like electronic door lock, you have to lift up on door to get to open after keying. I reported to front desk microwave had oversized (wrong) glass rotary tray so that microwave door could not be closed without shoving plate off rollers, and wouldn't rotate for even cooking. Staff appears to give excuses first, then if you complain enough times, do something about complaint. I stayed there a week, they never replaced incorrect microwave part, or even followed up, or asked if problem was resolved. On check out, I let them know again, they never fixed, was met with immediate excuse, "I told maintenance". What they should have been saying or at least thinking, I am sorry, I should have followed up. Normally I would assume, an oversight, no big deal. But when i dropped laundry off at front desk, only to return at end of day and find out my laundry was not there, I was given a bizarre excuse by front desk, instead of 'I will call them right away'. Then when they called. I had to listen to argument back and forth, until I finally told desk clerk, quit with the blame game and just ask how soon can they get them, where are my cloths. Other signs of poor management besides inconsistencies in cleaning from one house keeper to the next over a week's time, was dirt build up in room. I had to stop wearing white socks around the room, because it appeared the carpet has never been shampooed since its installation. My white socks quickly became black. Dirt build up in corners of bathroom, top half of shower wall not cleaned for a long time, with grose splatter on it, TV screen all smeared, mirrors, etc. Under tables, white pellet things or spider eggs near spider webs. Turning TV to an angle revealed some kind of shredded paper or mouse beading under TV, etc. Etc.
