Minimising Disruption from Maintenance

:
MSL Property Care Services discuss the role of planned maintenance scheduling in maximising business continuity.

 

Although the need for emergency repairs to equipment or the fabric of buildings inevitably arises, scheduled preventative maintenance activities are essential for ensuring facilities remain safe, secure and clean for employees and customers. 

 

Maintenance scheduling should always be undertaken in consultation with clients to minimise disruption to their workflows and business processes, however.

 

 

What is Planned Maintenance Scheduling?

A planned maintenance strategy refers to the upkeep of a building as a whole, from keeping gutters clean to servicing air conditioning units, it encompasses everything within the fabric of the building. By employing a planned maintenance schedule, you can choose a time which suits your business to conduct inspections and maintenance tasks so as not to disrupt the day to day running of your site.

 

When putting together your planned maintenance schedule, why not consider the seasons along with compliance and servicing requirements for your equipment. By adopting this proactive approach, you ensure your business stays ahead and minimise any potential problems in the future.

 


The Benefits of Planned Maintenance

There are many benefits to a planned maintenance schedule for your business, including:

 

Cost Saving

By regularly conducting inspections on your building, you can help to identify maintenance problems before they become major issues. These minor repairs and regular maintenance can greatly reduce the likelihood of a major breakage which can be costly in terms of repair or replacement, and if work has to cease whilst the repairs take place.


Longevity of Equipment

Checking equipment regularly for maintenance issues can help to improve its lifespan and reduce the likelihood it will break down and need replacement. This maintenance can also keep your equipment and systems running effectively for longer.


Budgeting

When setting out your businesses budgets it is easier to incorporate a regular maintenance cost rather than relying on reactive maintenance which could end up costing your business in more than just time. Large breakages can lead to huge and unexpected expenditures, but by regularly checking your building as part of a planned maintenance schedule you can see any problems before they escalate.


Business Continuity

It’s greatly important that your business can continue to run as normal throughout any maintenance or repair work and this can be achieved with planned maintenance. You can choose a time which suits your business such as out of working hours or on the weekend, to inspect your building. This will help to ensure your business can continue functioning as normal. Your business will also be less likely to face lengthy disruptions due to repairs if problems are identified early and repaired before they become larger issues.

 

 

There are many benefits for a business to employ a planned maintenance strategy, and whilst there may always be some element of reactive maintenance required, planning ahead can help keep your business both compliant and safe for employees and clients.
