Effective equipment maintenance involves regular inspections, cleaning, and repairs to prevent breakdowns, reduce downtime, and extend the useful life of equipment. Equipment maintenance can include tasks such as oil changes, filter replacements, and inspections for wear and tear. Proper maintenance of equipment is critical for ensuring safety, avoiding costly repairs, and maintaining productivity. Maintenance schedules and checklists can help ensure that equipment is inspected and maintained on a regular basis.
