When it comes to transportation, our workplace, even our leisurely actives, it is safe to say our society is highly dependent on equipment. New Yorkers are especially reliant on equipment, like the escalators used to access subways and trains, elevators used at work and often at home, large-scale heating and cooling machines used to regulate buildings with thousands of occupants, and so on.
Certain industries rely on equipment to conduct business, like the construction industry, which uses forklifts, scaffolds, cranes, bulldozers and other large machines on a daily basis.
Because equipment failure can quickly result is countless injuries, and even fatalities, it’s absolutely crucial that owners of equipment (or those tasked with maintaining equipment) conduct regular inspections, thoroughly address and rectify any malfunctioning equipment as soon as a problem is detected, complete preventative maintenance to avoid injury or death, and use historical data and ongoing observations to predict any issues that are likely to arise.
