More and more companies are prioritizing maintenance and safety management. Consistent and systematic maintenance management helps keeping the plants’ production operations running, and significantly reduces holding times for expensive components; at the same time, it also protects the investments made in the plant. Consistent maintenance extends the life of individual components and also allows existing warranty claims to be used to their fullest extent.
However, the economic aspect is not the only important factor. Safety management – monitoring and complying with safety regulations before, during and after work with the components, as well as regularly ensuring compliance with legal limits – ensures that the plant’s operator liability claims are limited or reduced to the intended level. In particular, preventing liability claims when performing work through outside companies and instructing them in the specific safety requirements for the plant are factors that can cause significant burdens for the plant operator.
