Why regular asset inspections are critical to your heavy equipment lifespan?

The list of benefits of proper and regular inspection is long, but if we have to set the spotlight to the most important one, this will definitely be the safety of your workers. Some other benefits include:

  • Save money (downtime due to breakdowns cost around $1,400 a day, according to Farm Industry News)
  • Lower risk of workplace injuries = save time and re-staffing costs (it costs around $4,129 to hire new employee, according to CAT)
