The SSPC QP1 certification is a nationally-recognized program that evaluates the practices of industrial painting contractors in key areas of the business. Earning an SSPC QP1 rating means the contractor is capable of performing surface preparation and coating application in the field on complex industrial/marine structures. The certification is determined by means of an impartial, annual on-site audit of an active job site, as well as the contractor's headquarter office, to verify that programs and standards, as set forth by the SSPC board, are being both implemented and used.
Coblaco Services completed its fifth annual QP1 Audit Evaluation in April, 2016. The Auditor inspected a Denver Water project in Cherry Hills Village; a project which required the abrasive blasting and re-lining of the interior of a hydraulic accumulator tank. All specifications and documentation was reviewed, as well as our confined-space and respiratory training.
The audit was successful. QP1 audits provide valuable feedback to identify any necessary updates to procedures and practices, and is indicative of how Coblaco Services measures up against industry standards.
Our results confirm that we remain an industry leader when it comes to best practices!
