Main Reasons Electrical Maintenance is Critical: Electrical Maintenance (Part 3)
Electrical Maintenance is Critical
In order to maintain the reliability of your electrical system, a strong predictive maintenance program is just as vital as the proper training of your employees. Whether you set up a manual PM program or a Computerized Maintenance Management System, recording and organizing your maintenance information makes the decision making process easier and puts you in the driver’s seat when it comes to identifying and correcting problems. All of this lends to your tenants being able to operate their businesses without interruptions.
Managing the integrity of your electrical system is crucial to owning a successful property. Trusting that your system will remain reliable, dependable, and operate in a predicable manner is a lot easier when you have the planning and action to prevent equipment breakdowns. When you regularly schedule inspections, calibrations, and repairs, you not only set yourself up for success but you increase the longevity of your system and happiness of tenants.
There is no getting around it, safety is a pillar of any electrical maintenance program. Guaranteeing that your staff and contractors are well-trained on the equipment they service is just as important as empowering them with an awareness of the inherent dangers in their workplace. Knowing how to do your job is not the same as being able to do it safely. The ultimate goal is to eliminate unnecessary failures and to ensure the safety of personnel and customers.
Everything discussed so far contributes to a healthy bottom line. When your maintenance program is built to be reliable, dependable, and safe, you reduce unexpected emergency expenses. What would last year’s budget look like without that unplanned outage or emergency repair? Can you think of an area where your programs are lacking? If so, what do you plant to do about it?
