Benefits of having a preventative maintenance contract
The benefits of having a preventative maintenance contract and what you need to know and do to be compliant
With the current supply chain issues, it’s more important than ever to make sure you have planned maintenance in order.
If you’re not doing daily checks to keep machines running, then you’re not giving yourself time to plan ahead for repairs. Ideally you need to identify repair needs weeks or even months in advance, that's because sourcing parts is now taking considerably longer, so there's never been a better time to review your current plan.
At HLS we have many years of repairs and maintenance experience under our belt, with almost every brand and model of access machines. This enables our engineers to be extremely efficient in identifying and fixing s as well as preventing future issues.
Our planned service and maintenance agreements ensure you are compliant with both LOLER and PUWER regulations.
Regular machine maintenance will not only ensure optimum performance but will also prevent costly repairs and extend the life of your equipment.
The law states that all mobile access platforms must be kept in good working order through regular checks, servicing and 6 monthly thorough examinations.
All our yearly maintenance contracts include as a minimum:
2 x LOLER Thorough examinations
2 x Routine services, Inspection reports, Certificate of Thorough Examination, and all completed by fully qualified IPAF CAP certified engineers
The benefits of a quality maintenance program include increased productivity and reduced downtime - we can work around your needs and provide contracts bespoke to your needs.
At HLS let us do the work, we will inform you when your Thorough Examination date is approaching and arrange the most suitable time and place to carry out the planned work so downtime is kept to a minimum.
A well maintained machine runs better, boosts performance and improves efficiency. Regularly keeping up to date with your service schedule has a multitude of benefits. Engine oil and filter replacements keep engines running smoothly, and for electric machines, regular lubrication keeps moving parts operating correctly and avoids damage; both save you money on potentially costly breakdowns.
