In an environment where downtime can be a costly setback and safety is non-negotiable, preventative maintenance is not only important but crucial to your equipment and facilities. At American Crane & Equipment Corporation, we understand the importance
of routine maintenance and the benefits it brings to your company. In this third installment of our Crane & Hoist Safety Series, we will discuss the top three benefits of preventative maintenance.
Keeping Production on Track
Routine maintenance can identify potential issues and prevent them from happening before they result in unexpected downtime that can disrupt workflow and hurt your bottom line. Downtime is one of the most significant costs for businesses. Routine maintenance reduces the risk of unexpected breakdowns, emergency maintenance and expensive repair fees, keeping production running smoothly and on schedule.
Routine maintenance prevents the risk of onsite injuries by ensuring that everything is working properly and complying with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards. Keeping your equipment up to OSHA standards prevents potential violations and fines, which nobody wants to deal with. At ACECO, the most important thing is our people. We understand the importance and value of keeping our team safe and providing them with a safe work environment which is why we have routine maintenance in practice for all equipment and facilities.
Properly maintained equipment functions more efficiently, reducing the amount of downtime experienced by companies and supporting a longer-lasting lifespan of equipment. Regular maintenance gives companies the chance to discover minor issues before they turn into major problems that cause widespread harm.
The importance of routine maintenance cannot be overstated. It’s a domino effect that will only harm you if you ignore it and benefit you if you indulge. Taking care of your equipment is taking care of your business. It protects your people, your facility, and your reputation.
