Since the economic downturn, businesses both large and small have been faced with the need to be even more diligent in their efforts to save money and not sacrifice regulatory compliance adherence.
The corporation that I am employed by has asked all of its employees to find ways to reduce expenditures and in general “be smart” with our revenues.
In the regulatory theater, we are faced with many challenges. One in particular is ensuring that all of our employees that may, at one time during their normal work activities, be faced with a fire that could be safely extinguished with a hand held portable fire extinguisher. The requirement is both a classroom and a field exercise with a live fire. We have done this for many years at a substantial expense that we deemed acceptable at that time. Last year (2008) we spent over $25,000.00 to train 350 personnel. Obviously, this expense had to somehow be reduced considering the instability of the economy.
I received an e-mail from your company about the BullEx Digital Fire Extinguisher training systems and decided to call. I was placed in touch with a sales representative and in no time, had a system for a trial at our facility in the Southern California, Los Angeles basin.
We have now conducted some of our training sessions with the BullEx Magnum Fire Training System and I am pleased to say that it has delivered all that it was advertised to do and even a little above! The savings for the first year will be $7,000.00 to $10,000.00, with the system nearly paying for itself the very first year!
Next year we will realize a savings of $22,000.00 to $23,000.00! In addition, we have eliminated visible air contaminants, reduced risk to the employees and still met all the requirements for the training.
I commend BullEx for their innovative ideas, and especially for the Magnum Fire Extinguisher Training System.
