(2) Specific areas should be predesignated for equipment laydown or
replacement parts staging. These areas should be set up during the
work-activity planning phase and maintained clear of other unrelated
items during the actual-work phase. Special tools and mobile
equipment should have preassigned storage or parking places.
(3) Each shop and remote work area should have storage that is
convenient and designed to help keep the area neat and clean.
Shelves, cabinets, lockers, and toolboxes are examples of storage
capabilities for items such as tools, parts, supplies, reference material,
and personal effects.
(4) Tool and equipment storage should be centrally located to shops and
normal work areas. These facilities should provide for ready access to
day-to-day tool needs and appropriate storage for infrequently used
tools and equipment.
(5) Tools issued to personnel for the routine performance of maintenance,
should be periodically inspected by supervision. Deficiencies such as
unauthorized modifications, broken tools, and indications of normal
"wear-out" should be corrected immediately.
5. Discuss with the trainees the site's evaluation process for maintenance facilities,
equipment, and tools.
