We undertake lubrication audits to help you establish a potential Return on Investment in an improvement programme.
Why have a lubrication Audit of your site?
According to BP, lubricants account for less than 1% of the maintenance budget.
Yet, lubrication can impact more than 40% of the maintenance budget.
Lubricants can influence performance in:
- Energy consumption
- Health & Safety
- Environmental performance
An audit will help identify where you can make improvements in your lubrication strategy.
A cost benefit analysis of your current performance will help establish a Return on Investment value to help justify the improvements you want to make.
How does the audit work?
We assess your current lubrication practices in a number of key areas:
- Storage, handling and dispensing
- Personnel & staff awareness
- Contamination control
- Oil analysis
- Machinery set-up
Each category has a number of issues we review and we then apply a ranking or score to establish a final report that helps us to prioritise the areas for improvement.
What is the deliverable?
The audit deliverable is a report that details:
- Your site’s ranking relative World Class standards
- A detailed breakdown of the issues found within each category reviewed
- A list of immediately correctable issues that could potentially save money in the short term
- A 5 year cost benefit analysis based on current expenditure with a Return on Investment calculated against the expected expenditure for the improvements
- A proposed strategy for implementing improvement to bring the site to a World Class standard
In addition, we provide a two hour short training session for all interested parties identifying the need for best practice lubrication. This helps to establish the need for best practice and clarify the scoring process.
An audit will highlight areas of weakness and provide a starting point on the Improvement Roadmap leading to:
- A structured improvement plan
- Best Practice implementation
- Consistent PM activity
- Safer work methods
- Cleaner & Greener activities
- More efficient lubrication
- More effective lubrication
- Use of less resources
- Continuous improvement in Lubrication Efficiency Scores
