Safety Certification

Recently, Danos Construction Safety Specialist Steven Segura took a bias to action to improve his knowledge and professional development in obtaining his Construction Health and Safety Technician credential. This American National Standards Institute and National Commission for Certifying Agencies accredited, exam-based certification is designed specifically by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals to serve as a benchmark for HSE knowledge and competency in the realm of construction. We are proud of his accomplishment as it serves in line with our value of improvement!

New Automation License

Felix Dominique, senior business development for automation, recently earned a license that allows Danos to perform instrumentation and electrical work in New Mexico. Before Felix earned this license, Danos was accommodating customers with equipment maintenance within the state. Now, the automation group is able to provide instrumentation and electrical services throughout New Mexico. Between Felix and Automation Operations Manager Mike White, automation services holds licenses in four states — Louisiana, Texas, West Virginia and New Mexico. Felix is currently working on earning this same license in Colorado and Oklahoma.

New Blasting Technique Wins Competitive Bid

Danos was recently awarded a contract to perform blasting and painting on a facility for one of our long-term major customers. During the bidding process, the project team got creative on how to best attack the localized corrosion cells identified on the walk-through and keep the costs of the project low. By implementing a backpack blasting method, a new technology to Danos, the project team was able to lower costs and win a competitive bid.

The crew assigned to this project received hands-on training at the Amelia Integrated Services Complex where they brushed up on their blasting techniques using the backpack blaster. They also learned the spraying techniques to ensure the Teslan coating system is applied properly.

The offshore customer representative who witnessed the training was satisfied with the knowledge gained by our coatings crew. Clay Carter, Danos coatings operations manager, said, “By being in tune with the industry technology and willing to challenge ourselves to think outside the box, the coatings group utilized this technology to best solve our customer’s biggest problem during this phase of platform maintenance. We also managed to further increase our capabilities as a company, grow our quality program through training on new equipment and refining techniques, and develop our employees by providing a new skill set. ”

What a perfect example of our purpose, values, and 2018 strategic focus of employee development! Great job!

Keeping employees connected.
