Performing a periodic world class Maintenance Technical Audit is vital to remain cost effective and operationally efficient. Such type of audit for building, infrastructure and production facility becomes an indispensable survival strategy employed by every well-discerning organization. It is a tried and tested tool for containing the costly exposures to all operations-related risks, while also boosting your competitive edge through heightened awareness and compliance to global standards, state regulatory statutes and known best practices.


Maintenance managers, maintenance engineers, PM specialists, line leaders, Supervisors, Facilities Managers.

There is also an advantage to having representatives from operations, production control and stockroom to understand Maintenance.
