Physical care and maintenance of assets

Assets of all kinds (people, buildings equipment etc) do not hold their value unless they are looked after. Dealing with problems when they arise and carrying out works that prevent problems are two important roles for a managing organisation.

Managing these processes is obviously different to carrying them out. A managing organisation will therefore be responsible for making sure that relevant policy and suppliers are in place to carry out relevant tasks. A checklist for planning these tasks can be found here.
