Keeping a building running smoothly requires not only regular maintenance but also well-trained staff. At Andrejs Property Management, we believe in investing in our staff to ensure they have the knowledge and skills necessary to keep your building in top condition. That’s why we offer regular training sessions for our maintenance staff, particularly for the role of superintendent. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some of the key areas of training that our superintendents receive to ensure they can perform their job effectively.

Daily Log Readings and Equipment Testing

One of the primary responsibilities of a superintendent is to monitor the building’s equipment and systems regularly. This includes taking daily log readings of building equipment such as pumps, motors, boilers, and fans. By doing so, the superintendent can identify any potential problems early on and take preventative measures to address them before they become more significant issues.

In addition to regular monitoring, our superintendents are trained to perform scheduled testing of emergency generators in accordance with the Ontario Fire Code. This ensures that the building’s backup power supply is in working order and can be relied upon in case of a power outage.

Power Failure Response and Building Maintenance

When a power failure occurs, it’s essential that building staff know how to respond quickly and efficiently. Our superintendents are trained to react appropriately to power failures and to maintain the building’s heating and cooling systems during these times.

Superintendents are also familiarized with the location of valves throughout the building and are trained to isolate main and riser valves in case of a water leak. This knowledge enables them to respond quickly to any issues that may arise.

Additionally, our superintendents understand all aspects of building maintenance and the responsibilities of contractors. They are trained to maintain time logs for contractors and to ensure that all contractors are performing their duties to the highest standard.
