In business and especially maintenance departments, knowing who is responsible for what is imperative to running any facility that is organized and well-executed. In Chillicothe, Ohio there was a recent issue with responsibility – it was a word that was repeatedly voiced.
“In many cases, it was was brought up with regard to confusion over who is responsible for what fixes. For example, consider issues involving trees planted throughout the downtown. Several of the grates around the bases of the trees are weed-covered or have grates partially pushed up by tree roots or half of the grate missing altogether. In other cases, some trees appear unhealthy and in need of replacement. I see this not just as they don’t have the money to do it, but are we clear what the process is?” said Tom White, chairman of the Downtown Development Commission. “Who is maintaining what? What is the city’s responsibility? What is the landowner’s responsibility? And what is that plan that we’re talking about? Does it need to be pulled out, dusted off and revised? That’s what we’ve got to find out.”
The same thing can easily happen in your maintenance department without a set plan on who is responsible for what. One of the easiest ways to avoid confusion and keep up with maintenance work orders is to use Maintenance Scheduling Software from Maintenance Care.
