How to Do it Right: Maintenance Management

There is a right way and a wrong way to manage maintenance in the mine. Doing it wrong can result in fines, loss of productivity, or even worse, harm to miners. In today’s blog we’ll take a look at the right way to do it. Keep these tips in mind, and you’ll keep your mine safer and more compliant than ever was possible before. 

Inspections, Digitized:

Digitizing your inspection process is one step you can take to make maintenance management significantly easier. Not only does it simplify the process of actually conducting the inspection but it makes notifying relevant personnel incredibly simple, thus, making resolving the problem a breeze. One software capable of such inspections is GroundHog EHS. On top of conducting inspections digitally, GroundHog EHS marks hazards and maintenance geographically on a map based on automatic GPS coordinates, making a quick overview easy. 

Work Order and Scheduling Management:

Inevitably, things have to be fixed. Scheduling work effectively is important to keeping a smooth running operation. In order to accomplish this, GroundHog EHS has built in scheduling, making assigning repairs to technicians very easy. Once a repair or cleanup has been taken care, technicians can simply record it in the app.

Maintenance and Downtime Tracking:

Keeping good track of what equipment is down and when is important to keep things running smoothly. Depending on the size of your operation, maybe you can do this with an excel spreadsheet. However, for larger operations, GroundHog FMS is a great option to keep track of all downtime, as well as the location of all equipment, down and active. Additionally, supervisors can track maintenance form the GroundHog FMS OpsCenter. GroundHog FMS makes every aspect of maintenance management incredibly straightforward.

Equipment Monitoring:

An important part of maintenance management is monitoring equipment effectively. This means keeping track of the location, tire pressure, gas levels etc. The old fashion method of tracking these things on paper is always an option, but when it matters paper is not fast enough. Another option is GroundHog FMS, GroundHog FMS will automatically make the information available to anywhere as soon as it is recorded. This means that any delays can be handled immediately.
