Equipment malfunctions and failures can result in releases of product, which have the potential to cause serious harm to people and significant damage to the environment.
When performed properly an inspection can help identify conditions that can lead to the onset of the abnormal operation, or premature failure of equipment. Identifying these conditions can provide crucial information needed to initiate steps to prevent and/or eliminate potential failures or malfunctions of components or equipment.
Eliminating, or reducing potential catastrophic failure, or malfunction of components or equipment can help you avoid the legal and financial consequences of cleaning up releases, repairing damage to the environment, and compensating people for injuries.
Inspections that help you identify the conditions mentioned above can also help you avoid the costs associated with having to make after-hours repairs to equipment. All of these costs can be in the thousands of dollars.
