Every other month, Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc.’s Service team management, led by our Superintendents, Michael Cox and Barry Lilley, conducts Professional Skills Workshop (PSW) training events. The purpose of these dedicated training days is to further develop specific skills necessary to perform repairs on a wide variety of roofing systems and sheet metal assemblies. Barry Lilley explains, “The Professional Skills Workshops are effective for numerous reasons. One is that it helps new employees learn the ways in which we do things at Maxwell Roofing. Working in the commercial roofing industry for the past 20-plus years, I’ve learned that every roofing company does things differently. We’re proud of our standards of work at Maxwell Roofing, and it’s important that our employees are fully equipped to maintain those quality standards.”

In addition to skills development, Maxwell’s leaders focus on a point of safety emphasis that’s relative to the team’s job duties with the goal of ensuring a complete and comprehensive understanding that will help workers daily on the job. Our Service Technicians are subject to a wide array of potential risks through the course of their daily tasks, and it is everyone’s responsibility to make sure that we are prepared to identify and mitigate such threats.

A Look at Our Fall 2018 Professional Skills Workshop

During our Fall 2018 PSW held in September, the topics discussed and practiced were metal roof repairs, field fabrication and installation of sheet metal components, and general ladder safety. Participants present were the entire Service team, including Vice President of Services, David Maxwell, our Account Managers, Estimators, Project Manager, Inspector, and all Service field personnel. “I’ve worked in the commercial roofing business for almost 20 years, but I’ve never stopped learning. With constant changes in materials and methods in the roofing industry, our Professional Skills Workshops help us all to stay informed and up-to-speed on the latest skills, methods, and safety procedures. During this recent PSW, I gained a lot of new knowledge about metal roofing and how to properly make cuts,” affirms Gary Brockway, a lead service technician at Maxwell Roofing.

These PSW days also serve as a great opportunity for Maxwell employees to get together and bond as a team, cementing their mutual respect and support for the contributions of the whole group. “The primary takeaways from PSW days are just as much about positive team-building moments as they are about skills development. We learn so much from each other when we are working toward common goals,” says David Maxwell.
