Superheat Heat Treatment

Celebrating 5 Years Injury Free: Making Safety the Priority in On-site Heat Treatment

Zero Recordable Injuries 2019-2023 badge for safe on-site heat treatment services

Safety at the forefront of manufacturing and operational processes, combined with cultural emphasis, is the critical point of difference for on-site heat treatment providers.

As we continuously preach, safety is a non-negotiable priority in the fast-paced industrial on-site heat treatment world. The absence of stringent safety measures, procedures, and tech advancements poses significant risks to lives and operational sustainability.

Here at Superheat, safety is not just a priority – it’s a core pillar of our company ethos. We take immense pride in not only meeting but exceeding safety standards. Over the past 24 years, our commitment to safety has been unwavering, resulting in an impressive record of 5 years of zero recordable injuries spanning from 2019-2023. This achievement reflects our dedication to the well-being of all workers, the development of a strong safety culture, and our continuous investment in R&D engineering, integrating innovative equipment safety features directly into our product manufacturing roadmap.

Foremost, we wish to recognize and thank each member of our nationwide and international teams. Every individual has contributed to prioritizing safety, particularly those actively engaged in field service operations, consistently making safety their primary focus day after day. The exceptional dedication is further amplified by the outstanding contributions of our Regional Safety Managers, Bret Cadenhead, Joe Brynda, Tony McDonald, and Stephen Guy, who have seamlessly collaborated with our Operations teams, shaping a safety-conscious work environment.

Aligned with our teams’ efforts, our innovation, technology, and manufacturing division, have played a vital role in maintaining consistent safety metrics. Acknowledging the evolving energy, oil, and gas landscape and heightened safety demands, we consistently anticipate the need for advanced equipment. These progressions reduce the human footprint on the worksite, embedding safety into operations and emphasizing a data-driven approach at the forefront of service to our clients.

Strategic investments in R&D and in-house manufacturing afford our precise control over safety features in our equipment. The Superheat SmartPoint™, SmartGen™, and SmartFurnace™ consoles, designed for total wireless remote operation via the global Superheat SmartCenters™, ensure rapid shutdown and power initiation in emergencies. Our proactive component fault mechanisms and independent breaker control adhere to the highest UL, CSA, and CE safety standards. The Superheat SmartPak™ introduces a unique safety lock-out capability directly at the weld location, empowering technicians with personalized SmartCards™ to have immediate power supply control. Diagnostic indicators on the SmartPak’s digital display also provide real-time operational knowledge to field staff, giving them informative data to pinpoint solutions should component faults occur. Ultimately, we take guessing out of discovery work and unnecessary time spent by the labor force in hazardous locations. Simultaneously, our SmartView™ digital QA and project management platform centralizes all safety procedures for quick access.

Outside of our technological advances, we aim to implement safety procedures at the human engagement level. The “Stop Work Authority” initiative enhances safety by identifying hazards and promptly halting work to prevent potentially severe job site injury. In 2023, introducing our new QR code vehicle inspection process resulted in a threefold increase in procedural compliance. Finally, our SWAT (Safe Work Action Team) QR code submissions increased 57% in 2023, amplifying companywide behavioral-based safety measures and underscoring Superheat’s commitment to an integrated and comprehensive safety culture.

This milestone reflects our core values and the trust placed in our safety systems. At Superheat, safety is not just a priority but a way of life.
