Do You Have a PM Program?
Don’t Skimp on Maintenance: It’s the Law!
Safety is not just related to operator behavior. Maintenance plays a major role in creating a safer and more productive work environment. When something as common as an oil leak causes someone to slip, both downtime and lost productivity occur. By executing a periodic maintenance (PM) program, organizations are not only ensuring that each lift truck receives timely, thorough inspections, but are also helping to assure that equipment is operating at peak efficiency.
Often lift truck dealers and OEMs offer turnkey PM programs so that organizations can focus on their core competencies, rather than equipment maintenance. And the financial impact of a program that does not include PM can be huge, because it’s the law. OSHA requires daily maintenance checks on lift trucks, and failure to meet regulatory requirements can result in violation fines, sometimes as much as $70,000 for a repeat or willful violation.
Another thing to keep in mind is that when a lift truck is temporarily unavailable due to PM or another issue, it is important not to fill the gap with just any truck. This can put the operator and others at risk by using a piece of equipment that isn’t designed for the specific task. A turnkey PM program can ensure that an operation has the correctly configured backup trucks available.
