A PMP can be developed for any industrial function that has a maintenance component. The same principles used for the operator and operation can be used for other mobile equipment, machinery, or process maintenance. It matters little the type of maintenance. It is more important that the workers, operators, supervisor, and management realize that the care taken in prevention will pay dividends in cost savings, lower accident cost, less equipment damage, and better overall working conditions and employee attitudes. Care of physical assets (physical plant, vehicles, machinery, etc.) is critical to the bottom line. The bonus is that it will reduce one of the factors that can contribute to the occupational injury and illness rate.
