Showcasing Innovation At Bureau Veritas Training School

28/09/18



Bureau Veritas opened the doors to its new Training School as part of a Crane Awareness Day at Crowland Cranes in Peterborough.


Visitors were given the opportunity to see live demonstrations of the technical innovations which are helping to enhance our testing, inspection and certification capabilities, including drones and hololens. There was also a chance to see behind the scenes at the Engineer Training School, which is based at Crowland Cranes, offering a blended approach of classroom and on-site training.


Highlights included live demonstrations of Bureau Veritas’s drone capability for enhanced inspection services, in partnership with SkyFutures, which is already being used for indoor and outdoor inspections. There was also a chance to try Microsoft HoloLens ‘mixed reality headsets, in partnership with SmartDS, which improve the quality and efficiency of our engineer training by allowing people to see and interact with holographic assets in a safe training environment.


Visitors were also offered:

A tour of the Training School, which has already seen more than 400 new recruits graduate through the programme

Live demonstrations of our SafeOps and Building One software, offering enhanced efficiencies for compliance of business operations and property portfolios

An introduction to our specialist Mobile Plant Division, delivering on-hire inspections to help meet the logistical challenges of meeting statutory obligations for mobile platforms, lifting and crane equipment when hired out to contractors

The opportunity to talk with our insurance specialists Mark Rosen and Graeme Greenlees 

Demonstrations of Bureau Veritas unique Remote Inspection Tools utilising RealWear smartglasses

An introduction to other specialist equipment and software used by the Bureau Veritas team


Kyle Veitch, technical, quality and risk director for Bureau Veritas, said: “This event offered a fascinating insight, not only into the benefits and the inner workings of the Bureau Veritas Training School and Mobile Plant Division, but the way in which Bureau Veritas is innovating to meet the changing demands of testing and inspection services too.


“We were able to give our clients and others from across the industry the opportunity to see technical innovations like drones and smartglasses, and to see how they are used to enhance safety, develop our people and ultimately improve the service given to our clients, driving our vision of safer, faster and better”
