Jobsite foremen rely on blast pot timers to accurately track true blasting time
Having visited thousands upon thousands of jobsites over the past 40+ years, there’s one thing we know for sure… Over 90% of jobsite foreman have no accurate assessment of how long their crew actually blasts. When asked, the most common answer is 6 hours.
And how do they come to this number? Well, the crew worked a full day including some set-up, then blasting, then pot refills, some breaks, repositioning equipment, lunch, blasting, refills, more blasting, and clean-up… so after an 8 hour day they guestimate – about 6 hours of blasting.
6 hours is a far higher number than is actually reported when one of these timers is connected to a jobsite pot. What’s the average time reported when a blast pot timer is installed?
About 3-4 hours. Think about that? The supervisor is off by 33%-50%.
Consider an athlete wrongly estimating that they are 33-50% faster than they really are?
Consider an investment banker wrongly estimating they are making 33-50% more money than they really are.
Top professionals – the best in the world – don’t guess at their performance. And with a plug-and-play timer on your jobsite pot you won’t either.
