Preventative Maintenance

Although it is well known that equipment routinely serviced on a pre-determined schedule outlasts equipment that is not, many companies still indulge in the practice of neglecting equipment and/or only responding reactively to equipment failures.

This is unfortunate as the preventive maintenance of Security and Fire assets has even greater implications in today’s economy and liability of the building manager.

 

Preventive maintenance has a number of powerful advantages that make it worth utilising. Because of these advantages, more and more companies are starting to realize the importance of taking proper care of their equipment.
 

Five Advantages of Preventive Maintenance

  • Compliance with the Australian Standards and Insurance requirements 

  • Extends the useful lifecycle of assets decreasing the need for capital replacements.

  • Enhances the efficiency of equipment keeping them running more efficiently and less false activation's.

  • Enhances customer (internal or external) service because maintenance teams have less unplanned maintenance and can respond quicker to new problems.
