4020 – 03 – Using Reactive Maintenance (RM)
A simple approach to maintaining your machinery is to use reactive maintenance, or RM. Reactive maintenance is used only when the machine has already broken down.
Even if you save money in the short term, it can result in more costs because the machine breaks down more often. This requires more work hours, downtime, and possible replacement of machines that can’t be fixed, which can mean more expenses. Injuries are far more likely to occur during reactive maintenance, this is because it occurs during unplanned downtime where they are rushed to finish the job. They tend to over look safety precautions and harm themselves or others.
Because of all the downsides involved with RM, a lot of companies have taken to preventive maintenance as a better and more efficient choice to the preservation of their machines
