Sellafield is a massive site with many different contracts ongoing at the same time, so PPS continually need to transfer plant and materials between jobsites. It's essential they know where their assets are at any given time, particularly among areas of the site that are deemed higher risk. In such cases, all tools and materials must be issued with a Nuclear Clearance Exemption certificate confirming that these assets are safe to leave the area.
They had previously used a paper-based system to track and trace their assets.However, these records were not always kept up-to-date and weren't fully visible across the business. PPS were the first company in the UK to adopt ON!Track and have seen many benefits. With ON!Track, they now know exactly where their assets are and can attach certificates electronically - giving them full visibility of where the plant is and whether it's safe to be transferred.
PPS have had a strong relationship with us for over 10 years, and 90% of their tool park is made up of Hilti tools.
Steven Fox, Quality and Compliance Manager for PPS, said: "We've been working closely with our Hilti Project Manager, using more and more of Hilti's product across the Sellafield site. Because of this partnership, we were interested in trialing ON!Track with a view to rolling it out to the full company."
