Multiple Examples of 24/7 Shift Schedules Are Now Available

Organizations looking for examples of 24/7 shift schedules have a new resource. Four different sets of widely-used schedules are now available (8 or 12-hour, fixed or rotating). This will reduce research time and improve the schedule selection process. The schedule packages are available from Shift Schedule Design, a company that specializes in the design of customized work schedules.

Novato, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2022 -- Managers faced with the challenge of designing a new shift schedule for their work group now have a new resource. Shift Schedule Design has just released four sets of widely-used shift schedules:

• 8-hour, fixed schedules
• 8-hour, rotating schedules
• 12-hour, fixed schedules
• 12-hour, rotating schedules

Each package contains ten different schedules for 24/7 coverage with the same number of employees on every shift. Each schedule includes a spreadsheet showing the on-off work pattern, an explanation of how the schedule works, and the advantages and disadvantages from both business and employee perspectives. There is also a summary sheet listing key features of all ten schedules, such as the number of crews, average overtime, longest and shortest breaks, and the number of weekends off each year.

Until now, designing a new shift schedule was not an easy job. Information on the subject is scarce, and relevant examples are nearly impossible to find. Scheduling software programs will manage an existing schedule, but they won’t create a new one. Consultants that specialize in shiftwork issues usually provide much broader services than just schedule design, and their costs may be prohibitive for smaller firms.

Bruce Oliver, the founder of Shift Schedule Design, explains why he is offering these packages. “Few managers can afford to spend days or weeks searching for examples of different schedules, or trying to develop solutions on their own. We assembled these packages to make it easier to examine a variety of different shift schedules side-by-side. Since the packages are primarily intended for smaller organizations, we priced them to fit a limited budget.”

The schedule packages will facilitate the process of selecting a new schedule. They will reduce research time, provide multiple options to choose from, and make it easier to determine employee opinions and preferences. For more information, contact:

Shift Schedule Design was launched in June 2004 to help small businesses find the best work schedule for their situation. The company designs schedules tailored to meet an organization’s unique requirements and preferences. Mr. Oliver was previously employed by a leading shiftwork consulting firm. He has over 20 years of business management experience.

Texas Electricians Face New Continuing Education Requirements, RedVector.com Approved to Offer Required Online Training

Last year, House Bill 1487 required Texas electricians to become licensed. More than 80,000 electrical contractors and related professionals rushed to comply with the law. This year, thousands of these electricians must, for the first time, take courses to renew their licenses.

(PRWEB) January 27, 2022 -- Last year, House Bill 1487 required Texas electricians to become licensed. More than 80,000 electrical contractors and related professionals rushed to comply with the law. This year, thousands of these electricians must, for the first time, take courses to renew their licenses.

Industry response to the licensing requirement exceeded projections set by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR), which expected 60,000 to 80,000 electricians, would apply for a state license. TDLR reported that 84,974 licenses have been issued as of January 11, 2005. “Because the licensing program is new, many Texas electricians may not realize that they must meet renewal requirements this year,” said Victoria Zambito, Vice President of Research and Development for RedVector.com, Inc. “For many busy electricians, meeting these requirements online through RedVector.com could save time and money.”
The Texas law states: “Each licensee must complete 4 hours of continuing education annually and prior to their renewal date.” RedVector.com has been approved by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (Provider Registration #1041) to train electricians.
