How to look after your machinery: Maintenance, Repair and Hire

As the backbone of any manufacturing business, the machinery used is fundamental to the successful running of the company. When it comes to the food industry, equipment maintenance is a critical factor in safe food product production.

A machinery maintenance program is an essential process for any food factory as it keeps mechanical assets running with minimal downtime. Maintenance covers regularly scheduled services, routine checks, emergency repairs, replacement, relocation or realignment of parts.

As experts in health and safety support to businesses within the food industry, we know the importance of having a robust HACCP (hazard analysis and critical control points) system to ensure food processing factories maintain food manufacturing equipment and machinery.

Food premises and equipment that are not kept in good repair and condition are a potential source of microbiological and physical contamination of food. Poor maintenance can also have health and safety implications for workers and visitors to site.
