Tool and equipment care and maintenance
Tools and equipment require proper care and maintenance, not only for longevity but also to remain useful and safe for the task at hand. Here are some care and maintenance practices for tools and equipment.
Having a cabinet where these tools and equipment are stored will be vital to ensuring a secure storage area. Also, greasing, lubricating or oiling metallic tools and equipment is essential to prevent rust from forming while keeping the tools in the best condition for future tasks.
Using a tool for the task it is intended helps to keep it in its best shape. This reduces unnecessary damage and protects the user. It is also important to check whether the tools are in the right condition before using them.
 Cleaning after use
Regular inspection of tools is beneficial since it provides an opportunity to see if tools may need repair or replacing. Inspections can help to prevent a situation where a last minute trip to the store to purchase a new tool or spare parts delays a project.
