And Gobeil says while you’re doing maintenance, don’t overlook safety equipment. He encourages the use of checklists, which should include safety equipment inspections to ensure these items are accessible working properly if they are needed. This includes fire extinguishers, first aid kits, and eyewash stations, well as personal protective equipment. For more information, and to see examples of checklists, go to
