Preventive Maintenance

Preventive Maintenance
 

Preventive maintenance refers to regular, routine maintenance to help keep equipment up and running, preventing any unplanned downtime and expensive costs from unanticipated equipment failure.  Preventive Maintenance requires careful planning and scheduling of maintenance on equipment before there is an actual problem, as well as keeping accurate records of past inspections and servicing reports.

The benefits of preventive maintenance include:

  • Prolonged life of District equipment
  • Less unplanned downtime caused by equipment failure
  • Less unnecessary maintenance and inspections
  • Fewer errors in day-to-day operations
  • Improved reliability of equipment
  • Fewer expensive repairs caused by unexpected equipment failure that must be fixed quickly
  • Reduced risk of injury
