Running Your Electrical Maintenance Program: Maximizing Results

When people think of maintenance programs, they often focus on mechanical parts. This is likely because the wear-and-tear on them is more noticeable. But the electrical systems of your company also need maintenance. It is more important to keep in good shape. Here are some pointers on how to set-up a proper electrical maintenance program for your company.

Aim For a Proactive Maintenance Strategy

A good first step for your electrical maintenance program is to make it as proactive as possible. A reactive maintenance program only takes action when something bad happens. Becoming proactive will mean that you can head off problems before they become major ones. To do this, you need to sit down and evaluate your current electrical system.

For one, you should identify the critical parts that you need to stay in operation. Proper documentation is also part of this strategy as it allows you to know what is in good repair and what is not. You should also gather information on previous failures and breakdowns so that you can prevent them. Finally, you should consult your team on what they think needs improvement in the current maintenance scheme.

Start Making Plans

With the documentation you have, you should start reviewing them to see what caused previous failures. The info you have can also help you predict other critical problems that come up. With this in mind, it is time to make plans on how to prevent these problems. For example, if records show that you have four possible failure points in your operations, then your maintenance program should focus on preventing all those from happening.

With your electrical maintenance program becoming more solid, you should add them to your general preventive maintenance program. This allows you to resolve all of the maintenance issues in your workplace in a single time frame.

Choose the Right Contractor

An essential part of your maintenance program is to have the experts working with you. Unless you’ve got a full-time electrical team on your payroll, it is better to hire independent professionals to do most of it. Additionally, you will want people who have experience in maintenance. Not every electrician has that training. If you want to run a proper maintenance program, then you will need people who do it regularly.

For example, expert maintenance of the system for instrumentation and control in Utah is not easy to find. Look around for services that offer it and look into their background to see if they can do the job. Always ask for certification on what they can do and what they can offer you.

Have a Set of Priorities

Your people can’t handle everything. This means that they have to prioritize. First-come, first-serve does not work if you want proper maintenance for your operations. You should have a clear ranking of what repairs and maintenance have priority. If a high-priority maintenance job needs to be done, then it should be done immediately even if a lower-priority job has to face a delay.

The electrical systems of your company are major components of your operations. Everything runs on electricity and any problem with your electrical power will disrupt your operations. Having a proper electrical maintenance program will ensure that your workplace will not suffer from any delays and will be constantly productive.
