Transcript of Need For Welderpassport

Increasing Labour Efficiency Is First Prize!
Navigating The Stormy Water
of Project Delivery
Getting a welder on the job is one of the most costly and time consuming labour recruitment processes.
Welder Performance Qualification is costly due to:
Direct cost of performing tests.
Cost of unproductive manpower
Cost of project management and recruitment efforts.
Cost of project delays or plant down time.
Common Platform for Administering Migrant Welders Needs:
Third party oversight to ensure data integrity.
Security features and a structure that protects participants' interests and their data.
Ability to access data from anywhere in the world.
Generate an employment history, to be able to verify that WPQ's have been re-validated and not revoked.
Integration of migrant and non-migrant welder data for fabricators.
Most Welder Performance Qualification (WPQ) tests are duplicates and do not add new information to the broader industry.
The approach of duplicating WPQ tests was needed in the past, as the alternatives were just as impractical and expensive as the replicated testing.
In our internet connected world, the infrastructure now exists for organisations to collaborate, to work towards elimination of the replicated efforts in the WPQ field.
The only outstanding element has been a suitable internet platform for achieving this collaborative effort in welder performance qualifications.
Until now, the only element missing to achieve the stated objectives was a common internet based platform.
That has now changed!
