Who should carry out maintenance?

Maintenance work should only be undertaken by those who are competent to do so, who have the necessary knowledge and experience to:

  • Know what to look at
  • Know what to look for
  • Know what to do, and
  • Be aware of, and able to avoid, unnecessary risks to themselves and others

In some cases, workers undertaking maintenance on certain types of equipment should have specific training is relevant to that work.
