Preventative maintenance is key for a high functioning facility. Not only does preventative maintenance save a facility money, it also helps to prevent emergency repairs and equipment failures. Keep your facility running smooth with this facility maintenance checklist from Michigan Quality Industrial Services.
Create set standards for all machines and equipment in your facility. This allows for quick and easy inspections to determine what machines need to be fixed. These set standards will help monitor efficiency and decide if any further maintenance is needed.
Prioritize Facility Needs
Determine what machine is the most important for your facility. Make this machine your top priority and inspect it regularly. Older machines or machines that break down often should also be inspected frequently. Your most important machines and machines with frequent problems should be the top priority for maintenance.
Inspect Facility Regularly
Set regulated times to inspect your entire facility. A regular schedule will help your facility notice areas in need of maintenance before they become problematic. Aspects of your facility to inspect regularly include, but are not limited to:
- Roofing – Twice a year and after strong storms
- Heating and cooling equipment – four times a year
- Plumbing and restrooms – once a year
- Electrical – every three to five years
Develop a Maintenance Plan
Make a maintenance plan for an easy way to ensure maintenance takes place. Implement a month-by-month plan for your facility. Have whoever is inspecting or doing maintenance at your facility creates and follows through with the plan. This will help with consistency and prevent confusion in the future.
