How to Create A Safe and Effective Electrical Maintenance Program 2019

Condition based maintenance programs are slowly replacing calendar based processes due to the cost and time investment associated with calendar based inspections and in certain locales, to comply with published electrical safety regulations.  A condition based maintenance strategy for electrical assets requires planning and should be based upon the criticality of each electrical component.  If the risk of asset failure causes painful downtime and hurts a company’s bottom line, then that asset is classified as critical to the operation of the company.  With new innovations, critical electrical assets can be routinely inspected under full load in a safe and guarded condition at any time.  By collecting and trending inspection data, the maintenance team can monitor the reliability of an asset and determine when a fix or replacement activity needs to be scheduled.  The goal is to find the fault and fix it before it totally fails.
