Oil and gas maintenance managers may soon be facing more reworks and backlogs as experienced frontline workers retire. The oil and gas workforce is getting older. This means companies will lose a lot of tribal knowledge these retiring workers have built over their careers. Once these experienced technicians and operators leave, that knowledge is gone… forever.
This whitepaper discusses a way oil and gas companies can preserve that tribal knowledge before it’s lost and pass it along to new hires and less experienced frontline workers today. This digital solution permits remote guidance and mentoring, enabling experienced veterans to give instructions to younger colleagues as they conduct work order repairs, reducing reworks and preventing backlogs.
