The idea of “prevention is better than cure” is applicable to many situations and sectors in life, and in business. I’m sure you know the importance of keeping your Electrical Distribution system up and running to ensure the continuity of the production and avoid further problems such as fires or explosions. The first cause of fire in industrial sites is electrical equipment failure and 56% of all electrical fires are due to lack proper maintenance. Thus, “prevention is better than cure” is the mantra that has led the industry to work towards preventive maintenance.
