Training Improves NAVFAC Hawaii Worker Operating Knowledge of Riding Paint Striping Machine

PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii (Oct. 17, 2016). Over 23 employees from Public Works Department Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam's Project Execution Sections PRJ3512 and PRJ3514 attended practical training in groups of two from Oct. 11 - 18 learning to operate a riding paint striping machine. Two machines came to Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii from the Air Force as part of joint basing a few years ago. Since then there have only been a few workers knowledgeable about the equipment. Currently, most workers use hand-push paint striping equipment, which works fine for smaller jobs; but can be very time consuming for larger ones. With ongoing planning for a number of future road, parking lot and runway striping jobs throughout the joint base, it became apparent that additional personnel needed to be trained up on the riding paint striping machines. Executing projects with the riding machines will improve completion times, allowing a quicker return of these important areas to our customers.
