Training and OMR

Planning for short- and long-term OM&R and replacement activities should commence concurrent with the construction phase. For these tasks, an OM&R team can be formulated either by the host facility or the contractor who is to be responsible for providing such services. The primary responsibilities of the team leader are: development and execution of the routine operating and maintenance systems; definition and management of the repair and emergency response resources; sustaining a trained and supported OM&R site staff; collecting and analyzing performance data; and responding to client concerns.

The OM&R supervisor should develop manuals that cover the total operation of each measure being installed. The manuals will contain step-by-step methods and illustrations for operating systems and their components. They will detail the location, function, characteristics, and component arrangements and relationships. Decisions should be made as to the intended long-term OM&R approach (i.e., as needed, preventative, or predictive) and who will be responsible (contractor or host facility) for each component. Ideally, an optimally planned program should be developed for each installed measure that will clearly prescribe the recommended maintenance schedule and expected frequency. Emergency maintenance procedures and parts inventory requirements should also be included.

The OM&R supervisor will provide, or arrange for, comprehensive training on the operation, troubleshooting, maintenance, and repair of equipment and systems modified or installed under each measure. Instruction may include a classroom phase, as well as practical hands-on field training. For each measure, the OM&R manuals and supplemental materials should be included in the training program.
