9 June 2023
On Friday, June 9, 2023 we celebrated the first Global Maintenance Day, a day to promote and celebrate the value of maintenance in our lives.
Maintenance takes place all around us, positively affecting the world we live in as individuals, families, organisations or communities. Besides its main task of keeping things running, good maintenance has many other positive influences and impacts that we do not consider at first glance, such as economic benefit, sustainable development and increased safety.
Proper maintenance usually takes place behind the scenes, so we are not always aware of its importance. Good technicians ensure that everything runs smoothly, even before a problem arises. Often, we don't even realise that maintenance has been carried out nor are we aware that we can contribute to it ourselves by small actions such as cleaning our coffee machine, greasing our bike, etc.
Global Maintenance Day has been initiated to help us reflect on the importance of maintenance in different aspects of our lives. On June 9th, various initiatives organised by stakeholders all around the world took place, to educate people on the importance of maintenance and to show our acknowledgement to all those who maintain the core objects that we rely upon every day.
The next Global Maintenance Day is June 9, 2024
We invite you to join us in celebrating good maintenance, and the dedication of all maintenance technicians and their contribution to the community and well-being of humanity.
