Primary tabs

The Body of Knowledge project began in 2014. Phase II has now been accomplished with this site and its searchable database with articles categorized according to both an Asset Management Framework and a Maintenance Management Framework. Continued development and maintenance of the PEMAC Body of Knowledge has been turned over to a standing committee with Alan Johnson appointed as its first Chairman.

Emotional First Aid - Lessons Learned from COVID19

Emotional First Aid

We asked a team of volunteers how we can best be of assistance to our members during this time. One said he had never had to deal with so many emotional issues from staff.

Working from home? Ideas for leveraging this time.

With many people at home either due to the closure of their operations, self-isolation protocols, or as a proactive measure to reduce non-essential staff on site, some might question how these individuals can be productive, particularly when assets are not operating.
