How would Planned Preventative Maintenance help my business?

If your business relies on machinery for its day to day operations, like most businesses do nowadays, then you will have considered different maintenance plans that are suitable for your business’ operations. From light bulbs and printers to boilers and generators, various elements of your company’s electronics will be in need of maintenance at one point or another.

One of the most utilised and implemented plans is planned preventative maintenance. The purpose of this is to avoid reactive maintenance wherever possible; the system whereby your machinery is repaired once it has broken, rather than putting processes in place to avoid it happening in the first place.

Planned preventative maintenance works by aiming to predict when faults will occur to avoid a complete break down or shut down, which can of course severely interrupt the way in which a business conducts its day to day service. Having regular and agreed upon scheduled checks allows you peace of mind knowing that your systems are being monitored and are running effectively and efficiently. Time based planned preventative maintenance works by scheduling in checks based on the warranty, instructions and policy, as well as when those carrying out the checks deem it necessary based on their experience within the field having worked with these items before.

This is such a popular form of maintenance as it allows business operations to run smoothly, avoiding serious faults where possible, which can save great amounts of time and money. OCD FM’s Planned Preventative Maintenance service will:
