How far away is death? Equipment gone wrong


To paraphrase Johnny Cash, to achieve equipment performance excellence, you must learn from failures and make sure they don’t become repeat failures.

What happens when you experience equipment incidents or failure time after time? What is your usual response? More importantly, what is your safety record? You need a reliable troubleshooting process.

Learn about the Equifactor® Equipment Failure Troubleshooting Process from the book, Using Equifactor® Troubleshooting Tools and TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis to Improve Equipment Reliability by Ken Reed and Mark Paradies.
