Better safe than sorry: How to improve health and safety with maintenance software
This article was written by Marc Cousineau. Safety first. It’s a term you’ve probably heard, and said, thousands of times. And for good reason— the safety of your team is incredibly important. Even minor accidents can have a profound impact on everything from productivity and morale, to the environment and individual lives, and lead to injuries, fines, lawsuits and more.An overreliance on reactive maintenance is a major cause of accidents in many production environments. In fact, one study found that corrective maintenance leads to twice the number of accidents than preventive maintenance. Establishing a preventive maintenance strategy is one way for maintenance teams to take control of their time, resources and money to reduce the likelihood of accidents.Although every maintenance manager would say it’s a top priority to improve health and safety, implementing preventive maintenance is not an easy goal to accomplish amidst a flurry of work orders, overseeing technicians, formulating r

The link between maintenance and a more sustainable worldMAINTENANCE TIPS
This article was written by Katie Allen, Fiix Alumni. Katie’s article remains very much relevant today as we celebrate Earth Day, and take action as individuals and organizations to look at our world through an environmentally-conscious lens. Waste. Garbage. Rubbish. Litter. Trash. Excess. These concepts are relatively new in our modern world. Waste was often synonymous with barren land and had nothing to do with disposal. Garbage — the act of throwing something away — was introduced in the early 1900s. Now, it’s a regular part of life— we buy, we use, and then we throw away. This is so common that we have entire waste management systems with teams of people and machinery dedicated to our garbage. This used to be my job. I would advise the public on where to put items when they were ready to throw it out. I would pick through big, black garbage bags on gruelling hot days, dissecting, weighing, and sorting what people threw out. I helped divert hazardous and electronic waste from enter
