Facility Maintenance Decisions

Provide Technicians with Detailed Lift Instruction Manuals





While it seems like stating the obvious, manuals always should be easily accessible. In spite of this obvious truth, technicians too often are frustrated by the lack of manuals, which tend to be lost or hidden away in a locker, bookshelf or desk. Even the most experienced technician is at a great disadvantage without them.

One useful feature of operation and maintenance manuals is written instructions that refer to drawings, either cutaway sections or three-dimensional illustrations. The illustrations number each component, and instructions refer to the part numbers to help technicians identify the component during assembly or disassembly. Part numbers also are essential for ordering replacements or obtaining them from the storeroom.

Clear instructions for safely performing each step for operation and maintenance are critical for ensuring worker efficiency, the safety and health of operators and technicians, and a long performance life for the lift at a reasonable cost.
