FLEET MANAGEMENT – TPR
Barriere’s Total Process Reliability (TPR) program teaches our crews how to improve machine reliability and efficiency.
Our comprehensive TPR process instructs employees on how to purchase, care for, and safely use and maintain equipment for our customers, crews, and operators. Regular quality inspections, cleaning, and proactive maintenance are all part of our commitment to maintaining a safe working environment for all of our employees.

Maintenance and Reliability Ensures Safety
Barriere leads the industry when it comes to maintenance and reliability. TPR teaches our operators to follow company standards and expectations for maintaining safe, properly functioning equipment through scheduled inspection, cleaning, and lubrication.
The goals of TPR include:
- Supporting a safe working environment by ensuring the safety of our equipment.
- Reducing or eliminating equipment downtime.
- Minimizing the costs of operating and owning equipment.
- Ensuring the highest quality of workmanship.
- Learning from and sharing our successes and overcoming obstacles.
- Giving our crew members and managers everything they need to achieve the best possible results on every job.
How We Accomplish Total Process Reliability
TPR fosters our culture of continuous improvement. Adhering to TPR guidelines and procedures enables our crews not only to improve equipment effectiveness and reliability, but also to share responsibility for maintaining equipment, create natural work groups, and improve the skills and knowledge of everyone in the crew.
Crew members share responsibility for the equipment assigned to them. Operators report defects during weekly equipment inspections on a smartphone. Barriere Group Maintenance Coordinators schedule the maintenance with vendor partners through our computer maintenance software. Everyone participates in our CLAIRE workshops, where we learn and relearn to Clean, Lubricate, Adjust, Inspect, Repair, and Eliminate.
Streamlining Fleet Management
Thanks to our commitment to continuous improvement and trending key performance indicators, Barriere has improved and streamlined many vital processes and procedures over the years, including response time, risk-based inspection, analysis of root-cause failure, and planning and scheduling. Condition-based monitoring has streamlined our total productive maintenance practices to lead us on a path to “World Class.”
