MR OR MRS FIX IT, THAT’S YOUR NEW NAME
When equipment, especially machinery, stops working, it’s your responsibility to fix the issue and get the machine up and running again as soon as possible.
There are two main parts to your day to day routine – first, you have to maintain the all the equipment being used in the plant. Whether it’s lubricating tools and moving parts, to replacing worn parts, or even just performing standard maintenance check-ups, you have to keep the wheels greased – metaphorically, and sometimes literally! The other main thing you will be doing is diagnosing issues with malfunctioning (or completely broken) equipment. This is less straightforward, and often requires you to reference the manufacturers instruction manuals (plus a bit of trial and error), but as you become more and more familiar with the machines in your plant, you’ll become like an equipment whisperer, giving the right part just the right nudge to fire the best back into life!
