The manufacturing industry faces a unique set of hazards – in fact, it’s one of the top five most hazardous industries for workers.
Most people think of maintenance as putting out fires. But if maintenance is done right, it can actually help prevent fires (literally and figuratively).
Did you know that preventative maintenance can result in up to a 545% return on your investment? Such a return is hard to ignore, especially for businesses who rely on machines and equipment to operate without interruption.
Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) are changing the way manufacturing plants operate. Manufacturing equipment is expensive to purchase and operate, and can quickly dip into your profits when it breaks. Even a brief period of unexpected downtime can push your production schedule far behind, not to mention the costs of decreased employee productivity while a machine is out of order.
You could have the most expensive, advanced machines on the market, but no piece of equipment will get you results if it doesn’t work.
