OSHA details emergency maintenance practices for plant employees

OSHA’s “Five Emergency Maintenance Best Practices All Plant Employees Should Follow” addresses issues such as a sudden machine failure of a critical asset that needs instant repair, according to an article in Occupational Health and Safety.

Emergency maintenance is an unplanned event of repair or maintenance to make the equipment operational again. Here are a few examples of emergency maintenance:

  • sudden replacement of a gasket of a pump
  • replacement of conveyor belts
  • repair of electrical wirings due to short circuit
  • troubleshooting of an elevator stoppage

Emergency maintenance doesn’t have a schedule and always happens without warnings, but it can be successfully managed with proper safety measures.
