WearCheck launches Operator Asset Care training course

Keeping machinery running smoothly is key to the efficient running of any mechanical operation, and those at the ‘coal face’ of the equipment – the machinery operators – are in prime position to monitor the condition of the components.

Upskilling operators to ensure that their machines are in perfect working order goes a long way to avoiding unplanned breakdowns. WearCheck has just launched a new course in which operators are trained in asset care, to remedy minor problems before the maintenance department is called in.

Course delegates earn three CPD points and cover the following areas of training: managing equipment lubrication, containing harmful debris, the importance of cleaning and inspection, the differences between age-related and random failures, inspection techniques, the importance of bearing, seal and lubrication failure as well as using activity boards and other related skills.

Course facilitator Jaco Kleynhans, from Gert Oberholzer Consulting, has over 20 years’ experience in machinery maintenance as well as training. His insight into component maintenance has been developed through working in many industries, including automotive, production, mining and civil construction.
