Construction Equipment Lifespan – Durability Via Digital Technology

Updated on May 13th, 2022

To establish reliable assurance of an extended construction equipment lifespan, construction contractors must adhere to several core maintenance guidelines. It begins with routine safety inspections designed to ensure the well being of your work crew. But the process must also include functions designed to keep company machines at peak operating performance levels.

Construction-Based Digital Technology Increases Construction Equipment Lifespan?

In essence: Construction-based equipment maintenance must combination the advancement of operator safety while simultaneously ensuring that on-site as well as office-based construction equipment delivers unmatched daily efficiency, productivity and durability. This typically involves a series of equipment-specific inspections, services, and monitoring processes – all of which can demand a heap of daily attention to checklists, forms and other documentation paperwork.

Or… You can just switch to a construction-based digital technology solution. 

Construction Equipment Lifespan Hindered By Incomplete Maintenance and Excessive Paperwork

According to the Yosemite EPA “Amateurs Digest” for heavy equipment inspection, the required daily checks for reliable equipment functionality and safety include over twenty-four basic steps (Amateurs Digest). Yet, aside from ensuring proper fluid levels, these indispensable safety and maintenance tests do not include any advanced equipment maintenance services. Likewise, a similar construction safety inspection checklist distributed by the Texas Department of Insurance (Construction Safety Inspection Checklist) involves over nine pages of functions and tests that must be completed in order to ensure compliance with Worker’s Health and Safety article HS95-063E(9/07).

Yet state-by-state, we find that no required inspection programs include the deep-level maintenance that ensures an enhanced construction equipment lifespan. The programs integrate some minor components of equipment maintenance, but they do not solely pertain to the construction industry or even to the long-term durability of the equipment.

They do, however, share one major activity: Every inspection, every service procedure, and every identified problem produces an overload of paperwork, missed opportunities, and excessive maintenance expenses. Worse: any loss of critical reporting may result in serious damage to equipment durability and reliability. And excessive downtime is a waste of personnel and money.
