Well-maintained equipment is one of the important parameters to ensure food safety. The scope of preventive maintenance includes equipment used for food handling, storage, processing, packaging, as well as any equipment not directly in the processing or packaging areas, such as air-handling units, HVAC, compressors, boilers, storage silos, temperature and humidity controls, and water backflow preventers.

The variety of equipment in need of regular maintenance requires food companies to have several trained and even specialised teams of employees that need to be equipped with the proper tools to safely service machinery.
