Assessment Across All Australian States and Territories

Across 500 Buildings

On over 300 Unique Asset Types

The Method for Statutory Maintenance Compliance Assurance

The method for statutory compliance assurance was to classify the asset list / register and review the current maintenance procedures against each asset class for compliance to statutory requirements. Where gaps were found, maintenance procedures were provided to address the gaps and implemented in the client information system. The process for the assessment is as follows:

Transmit Asset Register and Maintenance Procedures

We extracted the current asset list/ asset register for each facility and the current maintenance procedures undertaken.

Asset Register Validation

For facilities where there was low confidence in the asset register, a validation, condition and criticality assessment process was undertaken ether by Covaris, or by other providers with support by Covaris and Covaris tools. The validation process is outlined below.

Asset and Maintenance Procedures Data Import Into Pmsure

We imported the asset and maintenance procedures data into our proprietary software PMSure. Our software has been developed and updated over the last 15 plus years and contains a comprehensive database of legislative, regulatory, standard and codes of practice requirements for hundreds of asset types as well as preventive maintenance strategies and procedures aligned with these requirements. This database is kept up to date on a continual basis to ensure that the information is current and updated.

Asset Type Classification

We classified each facility asset list with asset types and mapped the statutory requirements for each asset type to assess gaps in compliance.

Map Statutory Requirements Against Asset Classes and Maintenance Procedures

We mapped the current facilities maintenance procedures against the asset classes and statutory requirements to assess any gaps.

Statutory Compliance Analysis

We analysed compliance based on maintenance frequency as well as maintenance tasks for the asset types against statutory requirements. The statutory requirements are defined as per the figure below.

Provided Compliant Maintenance Procedures

Were gaps were found, we provided compliant maintenance procedures to fill these gaps.

Provided Data Load up Files for Client Information System

We established data load up files based on the client information system requirements and assisted in the upload of the new maintenance procedures and maintenance schedule.
