As a Manager in Melbourne, you know how detrimental having any electrical break down can be for your business. If any of your electrical assets were to fail, tens of thousands of dollars in running costs and equipment repairs could be catastrophic to your operation - not to mention the cost in staff labour.
Despite the crucial nature of electrical equipment, routined and scheduled maintenance is not always focused on in some facilities.
While it may seem expensive to perform regular proactive maintenance, it really can save you time and money in disruption and repairs. Do you have a proactive maintenance plan in place?
Proactive maintenance is a facilities planned efforts towards maintaining, repairing and replacing equipment used during operation or production. Conversely, reactive maintenance is when a business waits until electrical equipment start to break down or fails completely before repairing them.
A proactive approach is always more effective and worthwhile in the long term.
Electrical equipment and systems should be fully inspected by a certified electrician every 3-5 years. Alternatively, individual assets such as, AC motors or switch boards, should be monitored in guidance to the manufacturers directions.
For instance, some equipment requires monthly inspection, while others may only need annual inspections.
We’ve compiled three of the most crucial maintenance checks that your facility should be monitoring. Remember, only properly trained and equipped staff or certified electricians should do the following checks.
