If there's one thing that always gets pushed on the back burner, it's preventative maintenance. Usually this is because things are so busy with pressing matters that the tasks that have to be done on a regular basis tend to get forgotten and planning for preventative maintenance can be a challenge.
For instance, if you run a hotel or motel maintenance crew then you know how busy things are during certain seasons like summer, holidays, spring break, and weekends. If it's a warehouse you are in charge of then you know that machinery maintenance is paramount in ensuring that the equipment is not only efficient but safe as well and production can get extremely busy during certain times of the year.
The reality is that these preventative maintenance tasks still have to be done in order to ensure that everything runs smoothly and efficiently and you don't have to put extra help on tasks that could have been taken care of by being proactive. Whether it's machines that have downtime due to not being serviced properly or extra work that maintenance workers have to do at a hotel, this puts everyone behind and is neither cost effective or an efficient way of doing business.
For instance, some of the common preventative tasks at a hospitality establishment include changing air filters, inspecting power generators, fire alarm inspections, vehicle or transportation inspections, checking plumbing hoses, checking shut-off valve leaks, etc. These are the tasks that keep everything running properly but during those busy times of the year it can seem that they get forgotten or pushed to the back of the queue. At a warehouse facility then it might be specific equipment that has to be maintained on a regular basis.
