EMC News, Project and Technical Information

EMC Contingency Plans for Coronavirus spread

EMC Employees

Employees will be briefed on the following:

Basic education on the coronavirus, including methods of transmission and symptoms. Enhanced personal hygiene measures to be used at home and at work.

Monitoring Viral Outbreaks

Management will monitor the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and National Institute for Health (NIH) websites for updates on a daily basis.

Prevention Measures

In the case of the coronavirus, all employees will be asked if they or any family members have traveled to any of the affected areas listed by the CDC.

There will be no business travel to affected areas and domestic travel will be discouraged.

Employees will be required to inform HR if they or a family member have traveled to an affected area.

If employees or a family member have visited an affected area, they will not be permitted to return to work or provide onsite services to our customers until after a quarantine period and physician release.

Visitors to our facilities will be asked if they or their family members have traveled to any of the affected areas. Those who have will not be permitted to enter our site.

Subcontractors to our facilities will be required to assure us that their employees and family members have not visited any of the affected areas. Those who have will not be permitted to enter our site.

If an employee or family member has contracted the virus, the employee will not be permitted to return to work until released by a physician.

Detection Measures

Employees exhibiting symptoms consistent with the coronavirus will be required to see a physician prior to returning to work.

Response Measures

We have the network and remote communication ability to have all of our back office and support staff work from home if needed.

We have enhanced camera surveillance capabilities that can allow even mid-level or first-line management to monitor and direct operations remotely.

Our field services staff can also work remotely if needed and need not be dispatched or return to our facility.

Our sales staff is not based at either of our facilities.

We have two locations that have similar capabilities (location depth).

We have in place an emergency response plan for natural disasters to ensure we can continue to provide services. This plan can be adapted to respond to a viral outbreak.

Critical Vendors and Critical Raw Materials

We have identified our critical vendors and critical raw materials and determined that none of the critical vendors or critical raw materials are located in any of the affected areas.

EMC Internal Capabilities

Although we subcontract a few services out of efficiency and cost, we can internalize almost all the services we contract out. For the services we cannot internalize there are several vendors that can supply our needs.

Prioritizing Work in Labor Shortages

We have experienced minor labor shortages in the past due to flu season and other causes. In this case all work is prioritized by Senior Management and extended working hours are instituted.

EMC is going digital!

EMC has purchased, and is beginning to install and implement, WebDocs from RJS Software in Burnsville, MN. WebDocs is a browser-based document management system (DMS) designed to streamline business processes and eliminate paper by digitally managing, storing, and distributing business content. The format of the content can be traditional paper, audio, video, email, and other electronic content.

The Courtland division is already up on the new system and testing it out while departments in the Chesapeake division are slated to come onboard in the upcoming months.

EMC reaches safety milestones.

EMC’s Chesapeake location has gone 365 days without a lost time accident. EMC's Courtland location has gone 1,000 days without a lost time accident.

EMC Maintenance Moves Online!

EMC is implementing the MPulse Maintenance Management software. MPulse is designed to help maintenance technicians and managers coordinate, schedule, track, and report on planned, and unplanned, repairs. This can be anything from changing a light bulb, scheduling a vehicle’s state inspection, to fixing a downed, critical piece of machinery.

By using this system, our maintenance staff can improve response times, reduce asset downtime, and increase the useable life of our vehicles and machinery. Having all of this data captured and stored gives management greater control and allows them to see exactly how much is being spent to maintain each piece of equipment. It also allows maintenance personnel to be scheduled more effectively.

EMC has received a Radioactive Materials License Amendment to possess Special Nuclear Material.

EMC has been granted Amendment 12 to our radioactive materials license. This amendment allows EMC greater flexibility in handling radioactive material throughout our entire campus.

EMC Awarded HRSD Gold award!

EMC has been recognized again for its environmental stewardship, recently earning a 2013 Hampton Roads Sanitation District Pretreatment Excellence Gold Award. Gold awards are presented to businesses with an outstanding environmental compliance record.

HRSD serves a population of 1.6 million in 17 cities and counties in southeastern Virginia.

Here We Grow Again!

Construction at our shop in Chesapeake, VA is underway. We're expanding our controlled-storage building 5,000 square feet for a total of 15,000 square feet when complete. Construction is on schedule to be completed in late May.

Learn more about our controlled-storage capabilities here.

EMC has recently expanded its' Engineering capabilities by recruiting a Metallurgist and a Welding Engineer

The additional expertise will allow EMC to solve complex materials issues regarding pump and motor components.

EMC Repair Facility Awarded SKF Certified Rebuilder Electric Motor Shop.

EMC Chesapeake's Facility has been audited and once again awarded SKF’s Certified Rebuilder-Electric Motors certification. Electric Motor and Contracting was the second company to be awarded this certification in 1995, when the SKF service facility auditing and classification process began. The auditor findings stated - EMC operates a best-in-class, procedure-driven, electric motor service company with competent, experienced and motivated people. The EMC consistently produces high quality repair and refurbishments for a wide range of customer types.

Baker DX-12

EMC’s DX-12 SKF Static Motor Analyzer Baker DX unit offers more capabilities to analyze all insulation and motor circuits in AC and DC motors, generators and coils.

See: DX-12 Datasheet

XRF Equipment

The analyzer that EMC recently acquired is the Thermo Niton XL2 Goldd which uses X-ray fluorescence. The Goldd technology associated with this analyzer allows it to see all elements with atomic # 12 and up allowing it to identify all metals except for plain carbon steels.

PDMA MCE

EMC has acquired an MCE (Motor circuit Evaluator) with DC and 5kv Test Options. The tester is a comprehensive static off line motor tester that produces detailed analyses of motor and circuit conditions. The MCE is cost effective, by eliminating untimely costly unplanned outages through proactive predictive maintenance.
